We ordered bento for lunch today. The fried rice was very dry and hard to swallow. The meat was very very salty. We told the waitress about it and asked her to feedback to the chef. She didn't even bother to respond. I had tried bento in many places, but was disappointed with this bento today. It has been a... More

Bought a bento and a box of sushi for lunch; and was pleasantly surprised. The chicken sushi were much better than the salmon one while the bento was worth the money. The taste was there and portion was good with a good price. Would return to try other dishes if I get a chance.

Had their Spicy chicken on noodles. After being served the wrong order 5 times, I finally got my order. Every bit of chicken was filled with bones, thus making the meal near un-edible. Should of stuck with one of the wrong orders. Also found some bits of bone in my Chicken sushi today as well. Not impressed.

My personal experience is that the sushi is just average here. i consider this place a budget place for a quick dine in or take away, particularly for students. This place is popular for the rice ball. Tried other japanese dishes (egg omelette) but wasn't to my expectation.
