    If you are here and you don't order the Dynamite Roll—spicy deliciousness—or the Spicy Baked Scallop Roll—excitingly delivered, you are missing a grand opportunity. Loved this place!

    Seems expensive for what they have to offer. Vegan need not be served with a holier than thou attitude.

    so good. sooooo good! get: pirates of the crunchy, yellow magic orchestra, and super pirates rolls. both the hot and sour ramen and miso ramen were delish, but i think i'd go hot and sour next time.
