“Unpleasant waitstaff - rude”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

We didn't even get to sample the food. The waiter did not greet us he just looked at us looking annoyed. we asked for a table for two and were showed a table in the center of the room right next to the reception area - it was awkwardly placed and we could clearly see several open tables towards the back of the restaurant. Twice we asked for a different table and the waiter informed us that this was the only other table they had for two people - they were not willing to use any of the open tables because this was designated for two people. Even when i told the waiter that this particular table would encourage me to leave the restaurant the response was unemotional and uncaring... He simply did not care and did not offer any apologies. Just nodded his head and showed us the door. On our way out the owner came and gave us a coupon 'for the next time we came' We just shook our heads at the ignorance of the entire situation. My fiance is from Argentina and i am and American and he confirmed that it was rather unusual and extremely rude.

“Good noodles and rice bowls”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

My husband and I had. Dinner here on a saturday. The staff and the owner were very friendly. Menu was extensive and included several ramen choices and rice bowls. We will be back to try the kimchi ramen.

Loved how it's a real Buddhist temple with traditional tatami room for low table dining and a schedule for Buddhist observations, meditation, etc. Music is live and very zen.
