    Food was incredible and our server was super awesome and helpful but the manager was probably the worst manager I have experienced at a restaurant ever.

    This.is.officially.my.favorite.restaurant. And I’m picky as f***. delicious & unique. Service was on point. Highly recommend the “weird” sake flight, ramen, and bread pudding.

    Kosher Japanese restaurant? I wasn’t expecting much, but this place really surprised me: the ramen was out of this world and all the appetizers were delicious. Good service also. Make a reservation.

    I️ love this place. The okonomiyaki is one of my favorites — very flavorful. Great for brunch or dinner. The lox bowl is also a go-to favorite.

    Creative Japanese with a Jewish twist...favorites were the lox bowl, Jew egg and the fugu tempura special. Mazeman too. Worth a visit !

    Matzoh ball ramen and wagyu beef tartar were excellent, but the real winner was the challah chocolate banana bread pudding. I would have taken a picture, but I ate it too quickly.

    Really delicious and fascinating flavor combos. Price fixed menus can be a bit pricy, but great for special occasions.

    Overpriced, too bright, and extremely limited menu for anyone that doesn't eat meat or fish. The staff is nice though, and the chef actually painted the beautiful piece on the wall himself.

    One of the coolest restaurants in Williamsburg! The matzohball ramen soup is the perfect blend of Jewish/Japenese cuisines. Everything on the menu is delicious. Omakase menu is $65!

    Chefs Sawako Okochi and Aaron Israel, both veterans of top NYC restaurants, wanted to explore their roots, but in merging these two divergent cuisines, they advanced something utterly unique. Read more

    Don't miss the Okonomiyaki pancake thang. It appears the preparation changes on occassion, but its base is (delicious emoji) good.

    This was definitely one of the worst places I've been to in Brooklyn. SALTIEST food, this whole Jew/Japanese thing absolutely doesn't work at all. It was borderline awful food. JUST SALT.

    Interesting concept on paper but fails to deliver slightly over decor and overall experience. Bare touches of Japanese and Jewish design. Overall menu was meh.

    The lox bowl was my favorite! It was well put together. The duck was tasty, too. I also tried the tuna cream cheese toast. It was good, but they're really small though. The asparagus was alright.

    Two words: strange combinations. Some dishes are okay but some take the Jewish-Japanese fusion a little too literally.

    Not the Jewish food I grew up with! This twist on fusion is welcome fun. Too pricey for what you get, but matzah ball ramen and duck teriyaki were great.

    I wanted to like it - but it's not really the tastiest combination. Pass on the ramen for sure. Drinks were nice.
