When we went in I really didn't want to stay, cause the atmosphere suck and I didn't feel comfortable, but my friends say let's stay. After wards we start to order and we ordered many different things to try: tapas, Sushi and so on. I must say it was great quality and we all enjoyed the food. Some reviews say... More

I honestly have had better sushi than here. They have a nice decor and outside seating , but i don't think its worth what they charge. It's rather expensive for very average tasting sushi.

The grilled octopus was fantastic. Sat outside, the service was great, the Octopus was tender, and did I mention that the food was delish. I ordered the grilled Octopus and the cold prosciutto platter. Next time going back with family, to try everything else.

Not fancy, but really cozy and good for a happy hour drink. I suggest the NY STRIP STEAK, excellent, my 3rd time here and will return!

At the time we arrived there was no one in the restaurant and only 1 customer had arrived throughout our meal. There were 5 of us in total. The waiter seemed uninterested in assisting us and more interested in the cell phone / discussing... More

I rated this restaurant poor -- I feel overall that was an appropriate rating. The staff were very gracious. The restaurant seems like it was in a bit of a crisis. It is part restaurant, part lounge, part drink bar, part sushi bar, part tapas restaurant -- it is trying to be too many things. I think it is also... More

Great bento boxes and customer service. Disliked nothing. The ambience was great and the sangria was very good.

The Food The menu at Manu's is an eclectic blend of Japanese, Latin and American cuisines with items like Manu's rolls which combine spicy tuna, fish roe, mango, shrimp tempura, melted mozarella and a drizzling of caramel sauce and spicy mayo. The tapas portions are generous, and mostly very good quality (the coconut-crusted scallops were average, however the grilled octopus... More
