There's a reason there is always a line up of people waiting for the door to open for dinner. The variety of food selection is great and the service staff are very friendly. I always know I will enjoy my meal here.

If you like well prepared food, this is the spot! Sushi, Bento boxes, Soups, my experience has been great. The setting is nicely designed, and service well executed. We had the tempura udon soup, which was delicious as well as an avocado salad. Highly recommended.
