    La comida es mala en general y las bebidas también, independientemente del lugar fuimos por la comida pero nos decepcionó Deben especificar que es un antro bar para no incluir niños pequeños.

    Loved the food and the music and our waitress was amazing she was nice and quick and funny. I would definitely go back. Only thing I wasn’t aware of was there is a time limit per table and we definitely weren’t done drinking and hanging out and possibly eating again by the time they had another reservation coming in, so that kinda sucked we had planned on staying all night but all and all it was good.

    Disappointing experience. Had a reservation, restaurant was empty, and still waited about 10 minutes for service. Dishes were dirty. Ordered a sashimi platter and very disappointed in the selection. Tamago is not sashimi. Carpaccio was the best thing on the menu. Decor is worn and missing in places too. Probably won’t return.

    Expectations as set by advertising were not met. Our waitress asked us if something was wrong because we weren’t drinking excessively (we each ordered one drink) and seemed a bit drunk herself. The food was subpar. The seating was uncomfortable.

    We went for a quick dinner/cocktails before a concert. The place was packed and understaffed, suggesting they were unaware of a major event in the area. We waited at least 20 minutes at our table before anyone approached us. Finally, we flagged down a server and she said that although she wasn't our server, she would help us. She was very sweet but it took another 20 minutes for her to tell us our chosen cocktail was out of stock. What downtown bar runs out of espresso martinis? Forty minutes in and we still didn't even have a cocktail. We would've left if every other restaurant in the area weren't also packed. We also had to ask for a missing food item, requiring us to scarf it down before heading to the concert. We were late anyway. Music was really loud, making it difficult to carry on a conversation with the other couple we were with. Having set up the dinner plan, I was embarrassed by the poor service. We probably won't go back.

    I went for my birthday with 11 friends and got seated right under the giant disco ball! Be aware that there are a lot of stairs that you need to climb so choose your shoes wisely. The food was alright for how expensive it was but that was kinda predicted for being in downtown SD. The service was great and we had no problems while there! Definitely check out the bathrooms and get your pics in by the front sign as well! Since we ate there, we got wrist bands to come back later once the club was open to get free entry inside so we didn’t have to pay for a cover fee! Definitely such a fun and great experience for my birthday and would highly recommend going to check it out!

    Bang Bang. Was a great experience. Sushi and appetizers were amazing. Food came out quick, and drinks were great. The menu has great options for sushi lovers and people who don't like raw fish. Also, we were given wristbands to come back later in the night to enjoy the club.

    There was an issue with our banking and the service plus music wasn’t letting us clear it up and our waitress has the ugliest attitude looking at us like if we were sown broke people who couldn’t pay . To the extend where I felt the need to show her my bank balance . She made everyone feel uncomfortable

    Food was outstanding and people very friendly. Service model didn’t work, though. Server takes order and then teams of different people deliver stuff sporadically. No one checked regularly and it was very difficult to get drinks, little things that you might around main dishes, etc. it detracted a lot from the excellent food and cool vibe of the place.

    Had a birthday dinner with reservation. We were sat 45 minutes past our reservation, waited an hour for appetizers, another hour goes by while waiting for sushi to the point where we gave up paid for the appetizers and left to go get food somewhere else. Three other tables were complaining about the same thing I’m pretty sure they left too. Told us we could talk to a manager after we paid for our stuff. We just paid and left. Avoid this place for special occasions.

    Ordered all our food in one go and then our sushi came out first and after it came out could not get a server over to ask for some wasabi and ginger. Tried multiple times to get their attention and overall all the servers seemed to be focused more on other tables instead. Finally got a servers attention but was already done eating our main meal and still didn’t have our edamame so we just canceled the rest of the order. Overall not great and definitely not worth the price of $50 for two sodas and two rolls.

The karate kick was my favorite but I liked both so much! Also they had a DJ playing too! Great tunes and a beautiful anniversary night date! Thanks for the amazing experience! - DJLOW Ps Highly recommend, make your reservation today!
