"This is a Chinese/Japanese Fusion restaurant with a strong tilt to sorba (not soba-buckwheat) style noodles. We prefer an assortment of the small dishes: spicy edamame, hoisin tofu, spicy chicken with lettuce leaves, and spicy bok choi. The sake selection is great as is the service."

"pro: the restaurant had modern/loung me feel to it with ok service, quiet and intimate setting (maybe due to the fact that it was half empty --- this is on vday).
con: the menu was subpar: just seems like a trap for whomever that think fusion-anything is upscale. Or maybe that's how they keep their door open."

"This is a wonderful Asian Fusian restaurant with excellent sake (try the three sake flight tasting). We had an assortment of small plates from their "small plates" menu, which was a nice way to tasting multiple dishes. The service was attentive, almost too much, where every wait-person checked to ensure we were pleased."

"If you like very delicious Asian cuisine and steaming bowls of fresh ramen, this is for you. The food is out of this world and the menu has an excellent selection. Portions are hearty and great for sharing. The yuzu crispy shrimp will make you swoon. This was our second time here and unfortunately, we were seated at a very large community table by the bar. While our community table was empty, the bar was busy. We were seated right under the speakers for the sound system. We asked the waiter if there was any way the music could be turned down-- we literally could not each each other over the table. Waiter was sweet, but nothing he could do. We would go back for the food, but I would not sit in that area again. Restaurants are about the food, not how loud the music is (and by the way, we are musicians and producers)."

"The space is gorgeous, staff is friendly and take pleasure in pleasing. Very yummy cocktails and beers. The noodle dishes we've tried have all been consistently delicious, and we're happy that more vegetable choices were added over the last 18 months. The only criticism is the inconsistency of the Lobster (over hot peppers) dish. It had been greatly improved, with the right amount of lobster meat, very fresh, in the shell (easily extractable), even as recently as a couple of weeks ago. Then this week, it wasn't the same; possibly used frozen lobster tails; meat was not as firm nor tasty, and they were out of the fabulous shumai and pear liqueur. It's a tough business and we want them to succeed, but pricy places must be consistent or the customer wanders off to the next new place. Nonetheless, we have faith and will return."
