“Nice change of pace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

When we noticed this restaurant was opening, we were hopeful it would provide a convenient change of pace from the abundant Tex-Mex and Chinese restaurants in the Magnolia area. It is a much nicer restaurant than the Chinese buffet place it replaced, but it is not expensive - most of the entrees are under $15. The menu offers mostly Korean and Japanese items, including an full sushi menu. A full-service bar is available. We had goyza (pan-fried dumplings) and an unagi roll for appetizers, and chicken katsu and the yuzu wasabi steak for entrees. The chicken was a little dry but the steak with the yuzu wasabi sauce was great. The service was a little slow - no doubt having only recently opened they are still working out some kinks. We'll be back next time we're in the mood for something different.
