    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.

    The combo meal is my go-to choice for this place. Yakitori chicken, shrimp omelette, all fried saimin. So good!

    service is good but the food in general is bad. worst yet this is coming from someone that will eat pretty much anything. i once ordered the oyako don and it had so much green onion on it that i could

    there are better options. This place was pretty bad. It looks like a decent spot and I had no problems with service but the saimin, tempura, and even the pie was pretty bad.

    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!

    If you're paying by credit card, they don't take American Express. Visa and MasterCard work though.

    Go during off hours (e.g. 2pm) for parking and short wait-times.

    Parking is a nightmare. Be ready to drive in circles until a stall opens.
