Have been to the sister restaurant many times - dinner Sunday was awesome and now will make this one a must go next time I am back!

This restaurant has just a few tables, so it can be a wait if you don't time it right. The tables are quite "cozy" in that you're pretty close to your neighbors. Not great for a serious intimate conversation... but a lively place for a...More

Wonderful appetizers and best noodle dishes. Try the black cod with garlic noodles, it's sublime. Perfectly cooked fish and stellar fish, must be from Monterey market.

My boyfriend and I have been on a ramen kick lately and decided to try this place. It was worth the wait. The wonton appetizer was tasty with the sweet sauce. I had the chicken and noodles and they are garlic meaty noodles and the...More
