This attractive spot in a shopping mall (good parking) has a comprehensive menu, a very good sake and beer list, extremely friendly and attentive waitresses, delicious food and sushi, quick service, and reasonable prices. Well worth a special trip for anyone in the South Bay Area!

The ramen was delicious and the sushi was really good. My teriyaki chicken lunch special was just ok. The chicken was not hot when it came out, but the flavor was good. The service was great and everyone was really friendly. We are glad we found this place on our vacation.
