I had good service at a late Sunday lunch here - not much of a crowd. There was a good selection of Japanese food on the menu. The sushi and salad were very fresh. Price was not cheap, but reasonable.

Really close to Harvard. Good food. Contemporary atmosphere. Great chicken wings. On Saturday nights, they have karaoke. Parking can be difficult like any Boston area.

My husband and I had dinner here but the food are horrible. We ordered the WOW! Wings for appetizer, the wings are tolerable, we had the Soy Garlic and the Spicy flavors, they are ok but much rather eat it at Bonchon in Allston/Brighton. For...More
