I recently went to Ginza but was a bit disappointed. While the place was very clean- and warm on a winter day, the food was just fair. I ordered a special with Lobster and avocado and just wasn't very impressed. The tuna roll was also...More

Wonderful spot to enjoy hot pot. This maybe the only place where you can enjoy sushi as an appetizer and hot pot as your main meal. If you can't decide between Vietnamese and Japanese this is a place to go. The flavors were spot on...More

This hidden gem has a cult like following and for good reason. The food is outstanding, the prices can't be beat, and the owners are wonderful. I cannot recommend it enough.

Vietnamese, Japanese, and Chinese food to suit all interests. Best. Crab. Rangoons. Ever. Pho was really good, and all of us enjoyed our sushi. Don't bother with the miso soup but def. get pork goyza! We will be back.

I've tried them all in the area and this is my favorite. Their beef stew is also great but really spicy and I like hot food. Service is always great.
