The food for lunch was good. A range of sushis and noodle or rice dishes. The menu, however was quite confusing and dufficult to work out. The food is wholesome and abundant

I liked this place, server girls were nice and the vibe was cool. Strange having TVs on in his kind of place but the food was good and wasn't too expensive. Right next to the movie theater so that was convenient.
