    If you're looking for actual Japanese food, you're in the wrong place. If you want fast, tasty, moderately healthy food, then you are in just the right spot :)

    Pro tip! Ask them to cook your noodles on the flat top. It's like getting food from downstairs at the Japanese department stores.

    Solid healthy Japanese options done quickly. Sushi options limited to basics. I recommend the house bowls or build your own. Fresh ingredients!

    Hate the remodel and new menu. Art was better before and it's more difficult to order now. They're moving toward other sit down Asian/noodle places. I won't be coming back. My salmon bowl was terrible

    Try getting a bowl with fresh greens instead of rice. There's great sugar free and gluten free markers on items. Helps you know what's in your food
