    Prime beef was nicely marbled. Spicy drops made me want to drink all my sauces! We loved the service there too we are definitely coming back!

    if you get chicken dont forget to get a side teriyaki sauce and hot drops makes such a difference in the sauces & strawberry ice cream for dessert !

    I consider a meal here a religious experience. My homies Ash and Leonard run the show. If you don't eat the beef here, you should be shot. Team Goma sauce for life!

    Save room for the "soup bowl". Ask for extra udon sauce for more flavor.

    Hot drops aren't very hot. I kept adding drops and gave up after 4 or 5.
