great lunch – lunch box and whedubbab is great. it is generous portion and good for health. I feel like I've done something nice for my body and soul. lunch box comes in many choices and whedubbab's bowl is much bigger than your face. HAHA. enjoy.
Great food with excellent service! – My girlfriend and I had heard alot of great things about Awon -- so we decided to give it a try. What a great experience! The staff was courteous and attentive. The sushi was fresh and I love all of the Korean-inspired side dishes.
great variety of japanse and korean foods! – It's a korean-owned Japanse restaurant--you can get the best of both worlds! Very fresh sushi/sashimi, as well as some key Korean seafood dishes. Some of the waitresses don't speak English very well but all in all service was great-very attentive. They have buttons at the table you can press when you want to get the attention of the waitresses. All the sushi/sashimi is very fresh and highly recommended. The spicy fish soup is delicious, as is the spicy cod stew. It's definitely become one of my favorite restaurants!
Hair will turn grey before getting service. Plenty of parking but no valet service when crowded – I went with a few business associates and ordered 15 orders of sushi. We were starving. For abalone sushi, they didn't list the price, just said Market Price. We placed 3 orders of abalone sushi. The bill came back, and each one cost $15. We got 8 orders of sushi after 1 hour and 10 minutes. When we tried to cancel the rest of the sushi in order to make it to our meeting, they hurriedly brought the rest of the sushi in a to-go box in 5 minutes, and they brought it with the check. Uni sushi were in the box. Uni and the rest of sushi have to eat fresh. They're raw for God's sake. They just kept saying that they only had 1 sushi chef.
