We went there for lunch at around 11:30, it's a good idea to beat the rush because the place is quite small and fills up really quickly. The food offerings are limited but what we ordered was really outstanding. I had their Poke bowl, which was really tasty. I will definitely go back to check out some of their other offerings. They also have a variety of Sake and Beers.

Loved the burger! Although most people choose the ramen. I was surprised at how good both the ramen and the burger were. This place is more like a California place with small seating capacity but excellent and different Asian -inspired food tastes. The problem is it is small and there is usually a wait, but we went on the late side and got a table immediately.

Torn between 4 and 5 circles, this place has lots of competition nearby for the top spot. There are stools by the kitchen and front window, a small number of seats and very good service, welcome, explanation and attention. The food combos are high quality and quite interesting and the kitchen is fast. It is a more casual and quick meal than some alternatives, and well worth the visit but keep your expectations at 4 stars, not five, and you'll love it.

Tremendously enjoyed the meal here. I had the spicy miso ramen with kaedama, and it didn't disappoint. Appetizers were good too, but slightly on the pricey side. (e.g. $9 for 4 dumplings.)

The seats are limited, so be ready to wait if you go during busy hours.

A fun little spot with outstanding food.
The restaurant is quite small - and popular - so you may have to wait - but it's worth it.
Very friendly staff. Creative and well-executed cocktails.
Thier Ramen is outstanding!
I will definitely return.
