Service and food were great. Very nice interior. I don't recommend the langostino appetizer because it was $24 and way too small to make a dent on your appetite.

Very pretty inside this restaurant. Server was excellent. Wagu dumplings are amazing. Rolls are inventive and yummy. Things are spicy so watch out. Very good!

We ordered so many things. Everything was delish! Not a bad flavor anywhere. The atmosphere here is to die for. Go Roka!
