This is Japanese fast food focusing on Rice Bowl dishes. Service was fast, but food was ordinary, much like the fast food served in food court, Taste was also ordinary, unlike Vancouver where there is a lot of Japanese eateries serving authentic Japanese dishes. Not worth the trip.

Lady: No. You can't just have rice. Me: Why is that? Lady: You can't just order rice, you have to order something else to... More

I thought this restaurant was great! We had the Ramen Soup and it was delicious! It had pork, noodles, a couple of slices of fish cakes, veggies and a wonderful miso base.

Amazed this place stays open! More Korean than Japanese. They were out of practically everything, and soup and even tea was barely lukewarm.
