“Good Asian Fusion with a fun vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

I come here regularly, sometimes for the food and sometimes for the decent bar (low key but always has the game on). The appetizers (lettuce wraps and shumai are my go-tos) are always reliable and it's rare that I even order an entree. Sushi isn't bad either - especially considering you don't have to pay top NY dime for a roll... The atmosphere is dark, but chill... And it's a good spot for a drink with a friend or an easy dinner.

“Delicious; convenient to Lincoln Ctr.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

The Japanese and SEAsian food is delicious, varied, and reasonable for the Lincoln Ctr. Area. Arrive early and get a quiet window seat. If you prefer trendy/music/ noisy, inside is fine.
We had excellent service.
Recommend highly.

“Great place for lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We stopped for lunch after our Central Park Walking Tour and really enjoyed the food. We sampled sushi, and some of the lunch specials.

A little pricy for lunch ($60 for 4), but hey, it's the west side of Manhattan, so I didn't really expect to pay any less for a nice sit-down restaurant.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Consistently good food. The back room is awfully noisy but I love the big Buddha.

“Nice ambience, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We tried the spicy tuna avocado salad, duck spring rolls and crispy chicken, and they were all good. The decoration is pleasant. This restaurant is a solid option if you are in the area.
