    If you like your tempura batter thick and oily, you'll love the tempura here! Not a favorite of mine. But saimin, teri pork and cone sushi rock!

    Not worth it. Go anywhere else but here. Saimin tasted like instant noodle, and the ramen burger was oily and not anything special.

    I know it says "saimin" in it's name but their Oxtail Soup is one of the best! Dessert, try the giant 50s style root beer float!

    I read that the service was bad but I didn't experience any of that. Food came out fast and the waitress checked up on me several times. Maybe I'm too picky.
