The place looks fabulous. The service was great and plates came in quickly. The only thing I disliked was that I felt the menu was very skewed towards cold plates. Don't get me wrong, the sushis we ordered were simply amazing. But I just really wished they had a nice ramen. Overall I totally recommend it.

Hi Mario,

Your feedback regarding the menu variety is very helpful. We actually offer a variety of warm rice bowls and ramen on out lunch menu, so if you are nearby you should definitely stop by to try them. We'll take this feedback to heart when we do our next evening menu update.

Cheers,
Mariah H.

This restaurant offers authentic Japanese food, with various dining options available. We decided to have the chef surprise us, which led us to eat a lot of great dishes that we likely would not have picked ourselves otherwise.

Price wise they are a bit on the expensive side, especially when you pair your food with sake.

Good morning Mariella,

We love hearing that our guests experienced Kuidaore - we think that it is always the best way to make your way through Zentan's menu, as it showcases many items that are guests favorites, as well as some off-menu chef specials. We hope you'll come back and join us again soon!

Cheers,
Mariah Howes

The service was excellent from start to finish. I was very impressed with the peas and sprouts appetizer and the gyu steak kabob from the grill. The rock shrimp was just okay and the California rolls were actually awful. The chocolate mousse suggested by the server was also mediocre.

Very unique and interesting meal in addition to being quite tasty. Expect the "tapas" sized items to come out one at a time and enjoy each individually and wholly while anticipating the next. A few were stellar, all were good.

Great garlic edamame, and sushi rolls. Not to mention the cocktails. This happened to be located in my hotel which made it a perfect choice, but I did check the reviews before I opted to dine there.
