Here's what LoveFood had to say:
"Industrial decor sets the tone for this modern Japanese restaurant in Charlotte. The menu is small and considered, with fried chicken and tasty gyoza joining a handful of traditional ramen dishes. Plump for Spicy Miso Ramen, which is hailed by diners as the best around. Pork chashu (braised pork) is paired with a chicken and dried seafood broth, which is lifted with a homemade soybean paste."
