    I explained to the server that I could not eat any spicy foods. I asked if the Chicken Teriyaki bowl was spicy and he said no. When the dish cam it has spicy Wok Choy in the bowl. I tried eating around it but the spice leaked through into the rice and other items in the bowl. I told the sever about it and he offered to remake the bowl. I never send food back at a restaurant but this was uneatable for me. The sever then brought me a new dish which did not have any spicy items in it although they changed the other vegetables in the dish so it wasn't the same. Also, the dish was 80% rice and only had a small scoop of the chicken. It was not good value at all for what I paid and I do not suggest ordering this particular dish unless you want a big bowl of rice.

    Noise too high. You don’t need music in that space, it impedes conversation. Otherwise, it was perfect.

    I came for a late lunch during restaurant week with a friend. Everything was delicious! We had the chicken gyoza, beef bao, beef brisket, and salmon teriyaki. It was great to have one of the handmade juices included with our meals too. I would definitely come back even when it’s not restaurant week.

    1st time I went, they just opened. Waiter kept making excuses before giving it up after 45 minutes and confessing that our food wasn't coming out as the kitchen was a disaster. Went back several years later and it was much better, but food came out of the kitchen cold and waiter was inattentive. Not the worst experience this time around, but no need to go back to this place with all of the other amazing options available in NYC.

    We love this restaurant and location! We were a big group and had 4 kids but the staff was very patient and helpful while helping us settle on our table and were overall very friendly. As always food was amazing! My parents loved the chicken and yasai katsu curries. Overall it was a great evening and experience.

    I specifically told them to seat us at a booth. It was for a birthday and our waiter had the usual “in a rush” attitude to us. Polite but if we waited any longer to order they would leave. We were sat on. High top chair and they even took one of our seats. Didn’t feel special, didn’t feel like anyone cared. Annoyed I paid for watered down drinks. Annoyed I was out in a high top. Like what’s the point of showing all these options if you’re not going to do them? Useless

    Extremely underwhelming. My chicken yaki soba was dry and flavorless. The waiter was pleasant and attentive as was the rest of the staff but the restaurant gave me a “fast food” vibe. Honestly the worst chicken yaki soba I’ve ever had.

    I’m so sad to leave this review, but last night I was so disappointed. I felt sorry for the server. He was completely overwhelmed, but really tried his best. He was taking care of multiple tables and a huge birthday party for a 23 year old girl. The manager, who was a women , came by and we mentioned a few things we needed (water, a fork nothing outrageous) she said she would be right back and didn’t return. I waited for my dinner and it never showed up until we had already eaten dessert. I asked to just pack it up to go, so the manager took it back and brought me back my ramen in a bag. Then, when I got home unpacking my food, I realized they did not put the broth for the ramen in the bag. We paid over $300 for the meal and you would really expect it to be better. The usual manager (Ally) was not there last night. We found out because we know her and asked for her just to say hello at the beginning of the meal. The other manager that was in charge really needed to get it together.
