Great staff and lots of healthy choices at reasonable prices. I recommend the Buddha Mix Build-Your-Own-Bowl with white chicken and Udon noodles and ginger-lime sauce. Lots of fresh veggies. The noodles remind me of dumplings and the sauce is flavorful without being too spicy. It's a great choice if you're trying to eat healthy!

They make for a good lunch, we got in and out with take-out on a busy day in about 10 15 minutes. The food is fresh and tastes great. I like the chicken teriyaki. Portions are a good size and prices are reasonable.

Good food, service and a shout out to Mandy. After a late lunch, I discovered I had low tire pressure in one tire. I went back inside to get some quarters and Mandy came to the rescue with a portable air compressor. She went out of her way to help a pregnant lady and her two year old. Thanks again !!!!

Just had the worst experience at this place. Walked in and put in a simple to go order, where the guy at the counter had to reenter multiple times because he 'accidentally deleted it'. It took over 30 minutes for them to make. When we finally get our food, the order is wrong. I asked for them to correct it, and it takes another 15 minutes for them to remake it. When they bring it out again it's still wrong, and we ask for a refund. The lady at the counter lost out ticket and it took her forever to find it, and when she does she says she's giving us a refund and comping our meal. We sit down to wait in plain view of this woman, and after waiting ANOTHER 10 minutes, we ask where our food is. She says she didn't bother asking the cooks to correct the mistake because she didn't want them to mess it up again. What?? Why are these people working here if they can't make a simple order? We didn't order anything unusual even, just 2 build your own bowls. And this woman kept watching us wait there for food she didn't even put in an order for. Never going back.

This place is great for good and fast Japanese food. I like to make my own bowl with chicken, Buddah blend veggies, and broth with brown rice - So Delicious!! Many of my coworkers like to get some of the pre-made sushi rolls; they say they are good (for a fast sushi place). :)

Fast casual Japanese noodle bowls and sushi. I am in love with the Dynamite chicken bowl with white meat and brown rice. I love the ambiance, which has smooth beats, and a red+black+white color scheme on the inside. They hook you up with a MTO meal if you want to build your own bowl.

A good place for cheap eats. Food is average but enough to satisfy cheapos. A very studenty place which is mostly a good thing. Place closes early so call ahead to avoid disappointment.
