    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.

    Great super fresh and yummy sushi. The sushi bar usually has walk in seating available. The sushi is really affordable and there are lots of specialty items. I love the shrimp toast.

    It's a little cramp during the lunch crowd. It's a small space and lots of patrons. Be sure to come early to get seats.

    Melt in yo mouth. Chicken and oysters, tsukune, pork chashu, shrimp toast were all delish. Order the ramen half-size! Black ramen ftw

  • Michael U.

    Mediocrity and undeserving price are what you should expect. However the if you grow starving, the food would be divine… just like any other dish by any crap cook.

    Michael Udem · December 29, 2012
  • Mucho C.

    Beef tongue. Reasonably priced too. Enjoy.

    The spicy chicken ramen (karamen) is one of the best i ever had. Delicious menu, affordable!

    Service is mediocre at best if you decide to wear t-shirt and shorts on a warm summer evening.

    Ryan Wong · September 8, 2012

    the homemade tofu pudding is amazing

    James Lee · September 8, 2012

    Good food but horrible service. Beware, they won't honor the Four Square deal even though it's still up.

    Closed for Sunday lunch! Argh.

    Kiat 明 · June 17, 2012
  • Jason C.

    Such an amazing place! Try their "Special" ramen (Only a few orders made daily), the salmon skewers, the shrimp toast and the Japanese pumpkin!

    Jason Cadreau · March 3, 2012
  • Dominique C.

    Sushi: go for the albacore with crispy onions and ALWAYS get some ramen. Delicious!

    Dominique Cherelle · January 29, 2012
  • Andrew S.

    Order the "special" ramen. One of the best in LA.

    Andrew S · December 24, 2011
  • wesone

    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!

    wesone · December 9, 2011
  • Travis M.

    Try the Hakata Ramen. It is SO delicious! Such great flavor in this giant bowl!
