A newer location in the heart of Bloomfield -- the heart of little Italy....Arrived at 12noon for lunch, 2 of us. The place was empty, we were seated quickly. We ordered iced tea - they were out...We placed our order from the lunch menu -- I ordered mango chicken, he ordered rock shrimp. Both came with salad. The salads were premade - as in made a long time ago - the lettuce was aged and wilting, but the ginger dressing was good. It took a while for our order to arrive - considering we were the only ones in the place I thought this was odd...Lunch was served in a compartmentalized type tray -- it was nicely presented. You got two fried things (sorry dont remember the name), 3 california rolls, a heaping of white rice and your entree - all broken out. My mango chicken was good, i must say. Fresh, sweet with just a hint of spiceyness to it. The rock shrimp was 80% breading...We were peelin off the breading to get to the small shrimp contained with in. This was a bit disappointing. Would not recommend. The other items were good. The decor of the restaurant is nice, it was clean. Service was slow, and I think it was over priced. There is a much better place on the opposite side of the street - servings are ample, prices are good, and the quality is consistant. I would not rave about this place. Frankly I thought it was a hibatchi type grill establishment - which it is not.

Went here for the first time tonight, the food was very average at a good price -- you can get better food nearby. Decor and atmosphere was nothing spectacular. While the service was good we called to ask if there was a bar before arrival and were told this place was BYOB,

We brought a mini cooler with some beer. There was no corking or bottle opening required on their part and no corking fee advertised on the menu. We simply asked for two empty glasses, opened our own beer, poured it ourselves and were charged a $3 corking fee PER PERSON for requesting empty glasses.

If we had brought a bottle of wine, they opened it, brought a bucket of ice or gave some sort of "corking" service, this would have been completely acceptable. BYOB and requesting empty glasses is not a "corking" service and we could have went somewhere within the same block and ordered the beer for $3 per person. Go to Nikki's Thai Kitchen or somewhere else, this place is not worth the time.

One positive note, the dishes were very well presented.

We went to Ginza with a Groupon coupon. We like Japanese food, so we were anxious to try it out. Wow. The Gyoza were the best I'd ever had. We had chicken hibachi (great), tuna volcano (fun and yummy), and banana dragon for dessert (indescribably delicious) The service was amazing, the waitresses hovered over us. Even the owner came to ask how our meal was. We will definitely be going back. It's great!
