    This place is a rip off. 11 dollar miso soup. 17 for yakisoba. Walked in out of curiosity. Won't be coming back for marginal novelty food that costs 2 times what its worth.

    The place is a good place, the sushi tacos are good but don't expect Japanese food there. The prices are expensive btw.

    Creative menu, cool music, like the concept. Food was tasty but very overpriced. Not quite worth the price.

    Nice idea. Doesn't taste very good though. Sea bass tacos were very bland. Banana and cream cheese sticker was fairly good.

    It's worth it for the conveyor belt alone. Number 11 - rice and chives is amazing. 13 too ^.^

    Amazing place. The food is great, so unique and creative. The drinks have equally as much imagination and are just as good. To top it all off the service is as good as you will find.

    Japanese tacos FTW! This place is great but the service is shabby.
  • Zach

    Seems interesting at first, but the food doesn't taste like anything really. Confusing what to do at the place, not excellent service, and looking in the kitchen is a bit scary. Oh well..
