Yume Wo Katare, new hours?

Their website says they're open 5-11 but everyone I've talked to says 6. Does anyone know if they changed their hours since they reopened?

  1. Seem to remember them changing their hours early in the year to 5pm. Regardless, I walked by yesterday around 5:15 and there were people inside.

    1. This is right. I drove by there today and their window is painted with the new hours: 5-11p.

      1. I went Wednesday night, and while the ramen was as tasty as I remember, they had two new Caucasian gentlemen working as servers. They didn't even speak Japanese as far as I could tell. It totally ruined the authentic Japanese flavor that I was seeking; as we all know, no respectable Japanese restaurant has a non-Japanese service staff. I will never go back.

        Just kidding. Of course I don't care and I'll be back. I just read something about a Seattle sushi chef who was mad at "bigoted" customers - they didn't like his fellow chef who wasn't Japanese, and they had complained about it on Yelp or something.

            Funny, I'm the opposite: if the chef preparing my Nouvelle French entree isn't Colombian, I'm generally disappointed.

              In addition to the food quality dipping considerably at Mami in the 2005-2010 interval, they lost almost all their Japanese staff. The Cantonese-speaking waitress should at least have been trained to yell "irashaimase" because the experience just isn't as good. Obviously this is flamebait but I do put value in staff's ability to speak a certain language (in appropriate cultural context) as it can support the right ambience and eating experience.
