Our meal included a delicious appetizer and dessert that were unique and not something I would've normally ordered. Because of the Groupon, it was a new, interesting, and tasty experience! Excellent service and because we went at 5:30 on a Friday, there was no wait to be seated.

As usual you get a slightly different treatment being a Groupon customer, but it's really polite and nice at that place and a good value!

Service is slow but the waiters are super nice and work really hard. Amazing shady private patio in the back; makes you feel like you're not surrounded by thousands of college students. Ahi tuna bento box had some extremely high quality tuna, which has been a hit or miss around. Minneapolis lately. Chicken waffle was super fun to try, I wouldn't order it again but definitely worth trying. I was super disappointed by the tonkotsu broth, it wasn't very flavorful. Ramen kazama can't be beat on that one IMO.

The Waffle and chicken was a treat as a starter, and the Chicken and ramen in spicy miso was also very good. I will be back to try their Poke' as we loved it in the Islands and hope to find it here too

The food was mostly good, but not super memorable and worth going back for. The service was severely lacking. Only one server was scheduled and he couldn't handle it. He wasn't able to answer questions about the groupon or menu items that were included. He also brought out the dessert while I was still eating my entree. As for the sake flights, all he did was set them on the table and walk away - didn't even bother telling us which ones he brought or explaining anything about them.
