  • Hilariously funny and great sushi! If a crazy Japanese Game show had a baby with an improv show, this would be their love child. Get your tickets early as they tend to sell out. Great for parties, birthdays and friends night out.
  • WOW! What a show. So much fun... so entertaining, seriously have to give a shout out to the performers they absolutely bust their tail to give you a good time (literally in some cases). Food was great.. the meat skewers were grilled to perfection. This is a perfect date night or small team outing or birthday spot. 10/10 will be back.
