If I lived on or closer to South Blvd I would eat here every day! The Fire and Ice Bowl is a life-changing experience. I cannot imagine anything tasting better than this however, I have yet to sample the entire menu...soon Futo Buta...soon.

There was just enough right with our meal (like our amazing server) but just enough wrong that I can only rate it a 3. My wife and I shared an order of the gyoza which tasted good, but they were over seated in the pan,...More
