Two words: cherry bomb! Absolutely delicious! The food was great and they even made the grandmas happy. My chief rub is parking but it’s south congress so it comes with location. Our food was delicious, but honestly our SERVER WAS THE BEST! He went above...More

The food was amazing! Our server was pretty good as well, but the front door was TERRIBLE. Not sure what her problem was, but acted this way for just about everyone that came in. Seemed unhappy to have to deal with them, hated her job,...More

Very popular with all of our family. Fun and casual - staff are clearly determinedly "cool". As well as what was on the menu, the staff were very happy to make some plainer ngiri rolls for our kids.

Was feeling adventurous and booked dinner through opentable, last minute and easy. The restaurant is casual especially for Japanese food, but don't let that fool you, everything is expertly prepared.

Look, it has a cool look. It has swings, it is hipsterish and on on the congress drag, but if we are just rating food this is maybe top 15. The price is too high for the little rolls they give you. I might as...More

We were lucky in getting a table at the last minute. Fun seating arrangement, with two of us on a swing seat. Good Japanese theme food. Not great, but comfortably tasty and familiar. While table was mixed on review, I liked it and would return...More
