Three of us went for a family birthday dinner. The atmosphere is casual and our server was terrific, filling us in on their sake specials. Everything we ordered was really tasty, but the winner was the beef teppan with cabbage.Wow! We also had yummy pork belly and sushi - all of it really good. All worth going back for.

This place has been around for a few years and I've been meaning to go for ages. I'll certainly be going back.

It is a unique experience, and the food is good, but not anything better than others...

Service is quick, and the food comes out hot. The wooden tables and benches are fine, but in the winter with a thick coat to sit on, they would be more tolerable.

Price about the same or higher than others...

Exceptional prawn spring roll, curry udon, beef tataki; melt-in-your-mouth seafood. Careful attention to quality ingredients. Creative dishes, beautifully presented on earthenware- truly a pleasure for the sight and senses.

This is a marvelous little place, Quite different than a lot of the local Japanese places.
The beef Tataki rivalled the best I have tasted, I also had the Mackerel which was described as "deep Fried" but was actually a cold dish but quite nice none the less.
My daughter had the Sashimi which she loved. I stole one of her scallops which was superb. She also let me sample a piece of her sushi roll which was also excellent -salmon, shrimp and Avacado. Probably one of the best places in terms of quality in the city. The caveats - a bit pricey - dinner for two with a tea and a small saki and tip over $90. The kitchen is also a bit slow. The quality however was excellent and if the cost isn't an issue for you - great place.
