- The food tastes like it’s been coated in MSG, much like savory Japanese snacks. (But in a good way! — Jenne)
- The chicken porridge feels like comfort food that you’d want if you’re feeling worn down. The portion was of enormous size. It could use some shichimi.
- The Teri-Q is slightly spicy, even though it doesn’t say so.
- Nice server system, where you can ring a bell if you need them. They come within 10 seconds.
- Average bathroom.
