  1. is that next to the Golden Crust? Wonder when Harlem is going to open up a good Diner?!!

  2. @natasha. I hear ya. Someone would make a killing in South Harlem if they opened up a diner! And I believe this is near Marshall’s and CVS.

  3. I ate there this afternoon and was under-impressed. The food presentation was like what you would get at an Halal cart. Taste was disappointing too. The food was no where near as good as there competitor’s Yoshinoya. I took some pictures and wrote a review on Yelp, if your interested.

    I love Japanese so I am interested in trying out another option in the neighborhood. What were your impressions of the food?
