Ramen bowl is not to be compared to ramen noodle soup. This version is fatty, creamy and begs for some broth. Noodle is very large, not what you'll find in traditional ramen kitchens. Sakana sushi roll is fishy both in smell and taste. The end of the roll was filled with something resembling a mix between salmon insulating fat and... More

Came with a work colleague on a Monday evening and we sat at the bar for a terrific meal of tapas and terrific mixed drinks. The menu ranges from BBQ to Greek dips, Sushi, Flatbreads, Ceviche, including fried Brussel sprouts with Bacon. The dessert, a warm chocolate brioche with miso ice cream, was big enough for two at $6, however,... More

Went here for dinner with my husband... Recommend to get here early... Sitting filled up quickly. Our waitress was great, checked in on us often and had great recommendations. Food came out fast and everything was delicious.

We ate here while staying in Plaza Midwood because it was recommended by waiters at other, nearby restaurants. We ate on the outside deck with heat lamps and plastic sheeting to stay warm and dry. The food was unusual and delicious. The service was very friendly and personable. To add to our experience, there was a severe thunder and lightning... More

You must try this place! After reading all the reviews that talked about the long wait I had the good fortune of a rainy Sunday night with a playoff football game (no TVs) so I made the thirty minute drive from my hotel for the last meal of my trip. So glad I did! Had a super nice guy seat... More

A gem of a place for great tapas and service. The entry was a little awkward- the curtain at the top of the stairs was pulled closed and zipped, but we muscled our way in. Very intimate spot. Everything we ordered was shared and delicious- Greek salad, tuna skewers, chicken skewers...I will be back, sooner than later.

We didn't realize how busy they would be on a Saturday night. We traveled from the Lake Norman area and only had a babysitter for a few hours. It was supposed to be a 2 hour wait they the host decided to surprise us and he seated us 5 minutes. This was a parent's night out dream come true! What... More

Four times a year my best friends from Atlanta comes to Charlotte and I always take them to one of a kind local restaurants. None of us had been here before and we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I knew it would be a long wait being a few days before Christmas but we had a great time at the... More

Went here after a show. We were seated immediately, which was great cause it was getting late. We had drinks & few tapas. The Korean wings were a bit spicy, but very good. We also tried the highly recommended pork belly & enjoyed that as well. Great service! Cool setting. Nice Vibes! Definitely worth a visit!

Loved this place. Very small so get here early to get a booth or table. Outdoor patio seating is available. What I can say is this is as eclectic of a place you'll find. The menu has just a load of small plates to satisfy anyone. Great selection of sushi if you're in the mood. Had a great gin and... More
