“Good clean flavors of Asian fusion food without MSG you cant go wrong!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

One of the best things about this place is that unlike other Asian restaurants they don’t use MSG in the food, the food has good clean flavors, ample portions, and very helpful staff.
The restaurant is very popular, and is often crowded, mainly with Anglos ; Its kosher, and very popular with locals and tourists alike. All the staff speak English.
I went with a friend and her children before Chanukah for a treat, we had sushi, the girls shared a main dish as did my friend and I, everything tasted good, the service was good.
Its better to book and to go early. This is a good place to people watch too!!!

“Better Every Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Ryu has a beautiful sitting area in the back of the restaurant that while more suitable for large groups I always request a table back there. The room is a 1/2 patio enclosure with glass walls and it's very cool.

Ryu has hot saki & Japanese beer. I'm not an expert (or novice) in drinking saki but I think it's great that they have it altogether and it makes the dining experience fun.

The food comes in large portions, family style, hot and I'm always impressed with the "asian fusion" cruisine. My wife loves sushi (I couldn't care less about it), but she always loves their sushi as well.

It's a good location, it's a beautiful design inside, the food is hot, the service is good, the menu is interesting, and I like their drink menu, I really recommend Ryu as a fun venue for small groups or friends to have a great evening.

“Menu reads better than the food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

We had high hopes for this restaurant but it missed out on almost every point. Service was slow, they offered brown rice on the menu but no longer serve it, the duck was not available and the dim sum were chewy. The menu was impressive, with a wide range of Asian dishes and a lot to choose from. Perhaps this should have set off warning bells. Can one kitchen make great Chinese, Thai and Japanese food? The answer is not in this case. All the dishes tasted the same, there was no szechuan spices in the veal dish and the organic eggplant and veal was mushy and tasteless. It is situated in a nice area but save your time and money with RYU.
