So I was feeling a little cold with a cough that wouldn't quit. Something spicey sounded really good, and comfort food would be nice. First I stopped at the drive thru Starbucks for their honey lemon mint tea, in Seal Beach, and across the parking...More

With so many places of this type this one seems to have a higher quality. Prices were standard. Dining room was very clean. Parking plentiful.

I was hungry, this restaurant was across the parking lot from my hotel and I didn't feel like driving anywhere. I noticed the local police patronized the place so I tried it. The food was okay, not great, not bad, just okay.

This is a fairly inexpensive Japanese restaurant with nothing of note but the food was good and the service was adequate. It has no atmosphere but I was interested in getting a light meal before heading to bed and it was good for that.

3 months later and still no change, I guess there's no corporate interest in these reviews. The server should wear plastic gloves if it's the same person that runs the register. And the server should be trained how to carry a bowl without fingering the...More

The food tastes really good, but the price is a bit high. Food comes out at a regular time, not exactly quick or too long.
