“Great variety of food, good location near to Union Square”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

My husband and I dine here about once a month, we also order from the delivery menu. The variety of food is great and the prix fixe list is great for lunch/light dinner. My favorites are the mini veggie loaf and the sesame medallions. When I am hungry you cannot beat the wheel of dharma I always have that on special occasions. They also have a good wine and cocktail list. The service is friendly and they are happy to talk about the menu if you have certain requirements. The delivery service is excellent the food always turns up hot and its super fast. It seems like you press the button on your order and the food is at your doorstep.

“Really good traditional...”
Reviewed February 22, 2009

Really good traditional Japanese Robata. The small plates are decent portions and the specialty sushi rolls are great. Atmosphere was pretty romantic but a bit too dim for my taste, could barely see my date across the table.

Over priced. nice decor. Wish food was good. Unique bathroom--kind of like what you may see in a public school in Japan.
