We arrived at about 9:50 and weren’t actually seated until 10:40. Since there were 5 of us I can understand the rediculously long wait – couples (groups of 2) had a much less-painful wait. I must say though, it was definately worth it. The food was great, the prices – reasonable and the atmosphere, joyful. The staff was really funny/friendly and accomodating. We just kept ordering dishes that tickled our fancy and had some lovely unfiltered saki (which was fruity and californian).
Guu with Garlic is definately worth checking out if you have the patience to wait in line, although I highly recommend making some reservations if you’re going to make it over there between Thurs and Sunday.
