This is a very unique place. Its like Asian tapas. They have some more substantial dishes but from what we experienced its mostly small plates and you won't leave hungry. The bar is exceptional and the drinks are very well made. We had mostly seafood...More

They have a good variety of Japanese food and drink. Food was so so. The rice was good. They took the menu away after the first order so we felt unwelcome to order more. No shoyu offered. Edamame was undercooked and must have come from...More
