  • Ravindra CLove the Saba Mackerel bento box. Maki or the sushi rolls are nicely done. Try the California rolls or the spicy tuna roll. The fish on the sushi is always fresh. One of the best unagi's in town.

  • Chad PughCheck out the bidet in the bathroom!

  • Shane lOne of my favorites. The bento combos are reasonably priced and they're one of the only places in the Twin Cities where there's good takoyaki! go during happy hour to make the bill a bit cheaper.

  • BillSome of the worst ramen I have ever eaten (karaka tan-tan men). The soup was thin and watery. No dashi or miso taste; faintest hint of chili. Blandest ramen noodles on Earth. @UniDeli, save me!

  • Jay S.One of the best bento boxes I've ever had. Small joint with great flavours.

  • Kou H.I'm not a big ramen fan but I have to admit, they have the best ramen in the cities (I've tried a few and the broth tastes bland). Too bad they only serve ramen in Monday's. Looks like I got to wait!

    55555 by Kou H.

    55555 by Chris S.
