    Meh service. If you're a sushi expert, don't eat here. Some of the worst I've ever had in LA. Spend some extra $ and go down the street to sushi roku or around the corner for nobu instead.

    If you dont like something they tell you to suck it. Spicy ramen had a sliver of pork and the broth tastes like burnt ball sack. Had ramen 200x better at Chabuya. Creamy shrimp were good though!

    Order the Homemade Organic Tofu (highly tasty) but don't serve it until you wait at least 5 mins 'til it solidifies! Better yet just ask your server or let him or her handle it.
