“Asian cuisine: a little above average”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Dined here with friends one February evening. The restaurant was surprisingly full for a Tuesday evening. The service was fast and friendly and the price reasonable. The decor and ambience pleasing. I recommend sitting in the glass-covered area at the rear of the restaurant - it is quieter and more roomy there. The food: Asian with plenty of dishes to choose from but nothing particularly spicy. The chicken tempura can be recommended. The suchi is good. My wife's salmon was cooked just right but this is not an Asian dish. Since this is one of the few kosher Asian options you should try it out unless you are used to very high standards. Avoid the deserts - nothing Asian, nothing special and overpriced.

“Nice place but dont eat”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

A fusion restaurant but what was fused I don't know.
Some is quite nice but its not that good and apart from the decor and cleanliness not much going for it.
They don't serve coke.
Over priced even for israel.

“Dissapointing: overpriced and not that great”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We were dissapointed with RYU. We found it quite expensive and not that great. We live in the DC area so have plentiful and excellent asian food. This was adequate at best. We ordered take out and the service was also slow.

“A travesty of asian cuisine - appalling”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

This glatt kosher restaurant on emek refaim street has splashed out on interior decor but forget the most important part of a restaurant - the food. It was singularly bad. The miso soup was unrecognizable. The dim sum was soggy and the cashew noodles were tasteless. And how do ruin rice in asian restaurant. And the tour de force was saved for last. We ordered creme brulee for dessert. This was without doubt the worst creme brulee i have ever eaten.

“Bad service.. worst ever sushi”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

We went last night with a group of 10 people to try out this place.. the Resturent looks nice and spacious..
First, they have no sushi combinations.
Second, the waitress does not know half of the menu
Third, many items were in the menu but they don't have it
Fourth, the food taste is below average
Fifth, the size if nigiri is 10 times bigger than what it should be, which make it hard to handle
Sixth, the raw fish on the top of the nigiri and sushimi is very thin
Seventh, they added two dishes to our bill that we didn't order.. or we ordered but didn't get..

Simply bad experience...
