Visited with my wife, son, daughter in law and grandkids, 3 and 4 for lunch. Simply put, the teppanyaki meal was really good and the two youngsters were totally embraced by the staff. Really impressed.

I had a very nice farewell lunch of a work collegue here, my first experience of a restaurant and it was both very tasty and very entertaining. I was told that at night it's even more "acrobatic" and more expensive too. The sake is a great option!
