We were in the area for a large event happening at the congress centre and several of the hotels in the surrounding area. A friend and I were in the International Plaza for a panel, and were looking for something other than quick fast food for dinner. The exterior of the restaurant is what initially prompted us to investigate, it's beautiful in a calming, subtle way. They were incredibly busy but the service was fast and the waitstaff was friendly. The interior is beautiful and feels warm and peaceful, and the kimono uniforms wore by the staff are elegant.
Both my friend and I regularly order and cook Japanese food, but agreed that their miso soup and gyoza were the most delicious we'd ever had. The sushi was also skillfully crafted and the fish tasted fresh. The tempura and teriyaki chicken were also quite enjoyable. They also had a wide selection of sake available, both warm and chilled, which paired wonderfully with our meal.
We will definetly be returning when we are back in the area, and would recommend it to anyone staying in, or near, the hotel. However, if you are planning on going around dinner, it might be a good idea to make a reservation.
