This restaurant was recommended and indicated it has typically a Japanese clientele, so thought it would be good for sure. And oh yes, it was packed when we arrived and we had no reservations, but they accommodated us at the counter, which was great as we could see 4 of their employees preparing the food like busy working bees.

This is not a sushi place as you would think Japanese, they do have sushi, but the menu is so much more. They have large menus with pictures to better decide. The food comes out as it's ready, so plates start arriving at different times. It is all so fresh and beautifully prepared. They had a pre-summer special including duck which was fabulous; duck sushi Kamo Roll?!, oh yes in a sweet chili sauce, delicious! We ordered gyoza, prawn gyoza, dragon roll, a hot pot which had amazing broth (beef and tofu), Kamo Yaki (grilled duck with vinegared soy sauce and chives), lightly grilled beef sashimi with garlic soy sauce.

Totally recommended, a must if you like Japanese and Asian food.

If the restaurant had not been recommended to us we would have turned around at the door. The decor is very tired and lacks atmosphere. The food, however, was good. The service is really designed to share dishes. So if you order your own you might all eat at different times.

Terrific Japanese place that thankfully doesn't follow the vogue of sushi places. More like a local town restaurant than a fancy designer joint & all the better for it. Great selection of dishes to suit all tastes, veggies, carnivores, young & old. As with most restaurants in Japan, photos of the dishes help make selection easier. The slightly haphazard delivery of the dishes adds to the charm of the place, carried out by delightful staff. All is fresh & tasty & very good value for money, especially if you byob
