Ordered tuna sushi and the fish tasted rotten. We order sushi from other places all the time. Went in and complained about the fish with the whole plate. Workers told us it was fresh and wouldn't compensate us at all or apologize. Were completely rude and acted like we were nuts and asked if we had ever eaten sushi before.

My friends told me this was a tapas place. It is not, even though it was on the sign. Was not busy and lots of seating. Nice decore. Tables are quite far from the benches. They move, but then you have no backrest. Service was appropriate but a little slow for how many guests were in the restaurant. Server was very kind, sweet and knowledgeable. Drinks were good, Sapporo on tap, score! Lots of nice cocktails. Food was amazing! Double amazing. Come here for great food. One item on feature menu was not good Yuki roll. And I did order a second cocktail but it did not come. Otherwise we will be back. Great job GAIJIN.

The food is excellent and the staff are helpful and polite. My personal fave is the spicy chicken karage but it also has non spicy and vegan options. Eat here as often as I can. Plus the prices are perfect for the great portions you get. Would give it ten stars but Google only lets me give five. Lol. Highly recommended

Price is reasonable, worthy to make ramen combo with one side dish. Salmon and avocado roll was delicious and fresh. Ramen tasted good but pork bone broth could have richer flavor and more oily to meet traditional Japanese style.

Beautiful atmosphere with good food and mediocre service. From the moment you walk in there's a zen aesthetic in its tasteful decor. The music was a bit more poppy (it's an Izakaya so it makes sense) that livened up the place. Normally I don't like sitting in the open but the way they have the place laid out, I would have been fine sharing my space in the center (that's where they have communal benches, while along the walls are booths for more privacy) The skewers we tried were fine. Standout dish: beef tongue with pickled tomatoes Both the Ramen I tried were good to very good. I've had better noodles elsewhere but their soup was better than I was expecting. We combo'd it. I was confused by the warmed kimchi but found that I actually rather liked it. On the other hand the cold tofu it was paired with I could have done without. The squid skewers that went with the other combo were very good. Better than the other skewers we had earlier. Service was mediocre. Nothing outstanding About it. We did get plenty of refills but not too much talk about the menu. It was my first time here. The bill was such a mess that I can't figure out how much things actually costed. She was friendly, but I felt wasn't very trained or polished. I heard the menu changes often however. So not sure what might be on it next time we show up. I would return. Hopefully the service improves on our next visit because this is easily a 5 star if that were the case.
