Food was excellent. A great diversity of typical japanese food culture and taste. It is always a promising sign when most of the restaurant is already full of japanese people...

Great cosy restaurant, Japanese owned. No sushi on the menu (there are too many of those nearby) but great sashimi and other Japanese dishes. Very friendly owners always in for a talk.
