The food was delicious -- I had the chef's sushi plate -- and the Chirashi bowl looks epic. The service for lunch was a bit hit-or-miss, though, as they couldn't remember who got what and told us things weren't available, got our changes, then brought us the original unavailable things. They were pleasant, though, and I still enjoyed it, so I will be coming back.
You do get quite a bit for a bento box lunch special... and the food quality is good... well as far as Japanese food cooked by a Korean staff can be... hehe! Hey... no hatin' there... and that's pretty true of the majority of Japanese restaurants in the So Cal area! TL:DR - a lot of good food for lunch, don't expect OMG it's soooo good.

Great place for Japanese lunch. Haven't been there for dinner yet though. The staff was great. The food, escpecially the short ribs and spicy chicken were superb. You should definitely get the lunch combo for lunch. You get 3 main dishes, salad and sides for a great price. It's on an older street in Glendale, that you may not notice since the American mall stepped in, but it is worth your time.
