I have been here quite a few times over the years. The food is fresh and tasty. Mains are $20-40. The staff are pleasant and efficient. You can try out the shoes-off traditional Japanese seating; or they have Western seating also. BYO Wine.

I went for dinner on a Friday eve with a friend. Parking was difficult to find - limited street parking. The restaurant itself has a really comfortable homey feel. Staff were friendly & helpful. Food was quite yummy. Would recommend!

On the day we visited, this place was good, no more, no less. The food was actually great, but there was a lack of energy that evening. A little more attentiveness next time, please.
