We sat outside at an individual table. It was very quiet and the service was excellent. The avocado rolls had a very generous amount of avocado. The edamame was well done but didn't have much in the way of salt on it. My partner had the ramen and was so so about it. We definitely would go back but might try eating indoors next time and some different menu items.
Probably the worst sushi place in Pasadena. Rolls are tasteless, 4 times more rice than what you expect, feels like you are eating a rice sandwich not a roll. Wasabi is not fresh and service is dismal at best. We were hungry but barely could eat few pieces and left the whole thing. Just writing this as the warning to all
The atmosphere of this restaurant makes me feel like I had come to a portal to the underworld or one of the dojos for ghost hunters in a Japanese manga. The dark restaurant was filled with some very different styles of customers. The only people working in the restaurant were a blonde waitress. The waitress talks like she's slowed down 1.5 times, and her friendly but uncaring approach to you is intriguing. She will take 20 minutes to prepare your water and tell you in a friendly manner that the food will take another 20 minutes but actually waits almost 40 minutes. The food wasn't good either. It made me think that the chef and the waiter didn't take their jobs seriously and it seemed like the restaurant wasn't open for the customers. Is this really just a simple restaurant? Standing on this expensive street, what role does it play？
Their Kara Miso is amazing! It only took 25 min for our order! The ramen was great, the broth super flavorful, the soft boiled eggs perfection(get extra like we did!)!
Pricing is very reasonable and ramen is pretty good. I got the red ramen and it could be a litle more spicier. We got there right after the lunch crowd so our food came rather quickly. My only complaint is that both of our appetizers came last, well after we were almost done with our food, and the gyozas were a little burnt.
