Food was really good, ok priced for the area, and the environment was a mix of local/university people. Would return.

Very slow service. The food is not the great. The kitchen staff just cannot get it together. They say the have 3 chefs working on Sushi on Tuesdays. Still takes them well over an hour to get it to the table. How long does it take to make a Sushi Roll?

As a local, it's just not worth to even bother anymore. The food is not great (sometimes amazing, sometimes overcooked) when it arrives (sometimes the ticket is not turned it). The wait staff is equally variable with longterm servers who care and students who don't. Sometimes service is downright dysfunctional. And sloooooowwwww down....your food is not coming any time soon.

We have visited this restaurant before and had a similar experience - very slow service. Tonight was the worst yet. Our waitress had too many tables in her section and was rather curt. She was never rude but definitely not very personable. Food took 45 minutes to arrive - no apologies, no explanations. Food is decent - pretty much what you would expect based on such a large and varied menu - but the service is what will prevent us from returning.
