Prices were as expected for a State Street restaurant, service was perfectly sufficient (pleasant enough, and well-timed), and food quality was excellent.

Lots of interesting and delicious choices on the menu! Our waiter made great suggestions when we asked, and the food was fresh and so delicious! Eating inside or outside was great - didn't seem to be a bad seat.

Awesome food and vegetarian friendly. From the edamame, to the eggplant in miso, to the spicy vegetable dumpling with spinach sauce, to the magic mushroom role. Brilliant
