We had a group of 6 and got one of the small rooms. Even in one of the private rooms, the noise was loud. There is a 'bell' for service. Service was fairly prompt. There is a good choice of food and sake.

I dined here with my daughter and her 8-month old infant recently. We did not have reservations, and thus were seated at the bar....a bit inconvenient with a small child. However, the wait staff was very friendly and took good care of us, including a...More
