Kids meal comes with edamame, tonkotsu ramen and matcha ice cream. There is raw garlic as condiment, use a little bit. It's yum! Much nicer place to have lunch than the dark Street food court at Westgate.

Quite good, nothing special. Service nice but not very warmy. Food average, nothing special. No particular recommendation.
