Really busy and great place to go for lunch and dinner,had a great experience and hope one day they will deliver food too as well.
The food is great, but the service leaves something to be desired. I enjoy the vibe of the place. The cucumber and crab salad is my favorite.
We arrived at a little after 7pm in a Friday night. The place was busy but not ridiculously crowded. We were seated right away. The music was nice (from Bruno Mars to Janet Jackson) The service was outstanding! Justin, our server, thought we waited too long for our ramen. It didn't seem long to us as we were busy digging in on the delicious appetizers of Japanese fried chicken (yum) and braised pork belly (omg yum). Next thing we knew, Justin came over and told us he discounted part of our meal and apologized for the wait and then the manager brought us MORE complimentary pork belly! Seriously, we didn't think the wait was long at all! The appetizers were plenty for 2 of us. We ordered the mild curry ramen (a bit on the spicy side) and the spicy Wasabi ramen with shrimp added. Both were very tasty! The curry was spicier than I expected, but the curry flavors were spot on. We will definitely come back and I will recommend this place to my friends for sure!
This place needs some new management...bad. The service is horrible. Employees just don't care and don't know what they are doing. There's erroneous charges, the short lady with the red head scarf just adding on extra charges. I didn't have time to argue with her but she's curt and on the rude side. The one of the managers has dark hair and glasses and barely speaks will just walk away from you when you complain. Just horrible. A shame, cause I love their food! The customer clientele is bad too...people that just don't know how to act
Great spot for sushi in the heart of midtown! The sushi is always fresh and I love the atmosphere here: Very modern and upbeat. The outdoor seating is primo for people watching, and I love that there's an indoor-outdoor bar you can sit at. The menu changes seasonally, but some of my favorite staple items are the garlic edamame and the Viva Las Vegas roll. Before your meal, go for one of the seasonal unique cocktails, like a peach basil sour. More details here: http://bit.ly/29FLs1f
Location: Right near two urban licks. They offer complimentary valet parking because the parking can get very tight. Atmosphere: Cool, hip, and peaceful. They have a big wooden tree and fountain in the center of their restaurant, which is very serene and modern. The decor is very simple and allows you to focus on their food and bar. Food/Beverages: They offer a wide array of beers, cocktails and food as well. Their dishes range from traditional japanese items such as Okonomiyaki (japanese pancake) to other yummy dishes such as their georgia white shrimp. We ordered the curry ramen, spicy bacon ramen, Okonomiyaki, georgia white shrimp and gommae. Their ramen is extremely flavorful and not the typical ramen that you imagine. It is also very filling and their soups are very rich as well. Their Okonomiyaki was very, very good also. Their version had bacon and lobster and was cooked to perfection. The georgia shrimp appetizer featured locally grilled shrimp served over spicy mayo, which was delicious also. The gommae was a bit different than others because it tasted like chrysanthemum, which was pretty cool and different. My favorites were the Okonomiyaki and the curry ramen. Service: Our server was very sweet and attentive. She made us feel very comfortable and helped us answer any questions that we had. Overall: Cool, fun and delicious place to grab ramen when you are on the Beltline. I also love that they offer so many other choices and a late night menu as well. After 10pm, they offer a ramen burger. Usually they do not close until 2am on the weekends, which is a great option for people who want to grab a drink or late night bowl of delicious ramen. They do not serve your traditional ramen, but ramen with a good twist. It is nice to have something different from time to time and Nexto is doing a fantastic job at this.
Fantastic ramen place! Sure, it's hidden in the corner of the Tara Theater parking lot, but as with most authentic places, Hajime is worth the search. The menu features ramen bowls, rice bowls, and traditional Japanese small plates.
Ra Sushi is a go-to place for happy hour. This is the only time I ever really go. The prices are great ranging between $3-$10 and there's a wide variety of items on the menu. Parking is easy and they validate for up to 2 hours. Some of my dish recommendations are the garlic edamame, shrimp tempura roll and the viva las vegas rolls.
Go to place for good sushi and great happy hour specials ( both food and drinks) I went on Sunday and Mo the bartender was awesome! My chicken yakatori and apple sake were just what the doctor ordered.
Have a taste for Hibachi? KIKU offers a variety of dishes from the Hibachi grill as well as tons of Sushi options. My go to is the Hibachi chicken and shrimp with fried rice. When I'm out with my girls we sit at the grill to get that personal touch from the chef. When I'm by myself I sit at the bar and chat with the bartender while enjoying a sushi roll. Great atmosphere, warm and inviting.
