Had dinner with hubby there quite a few times. Enjoy it every time. Having the Japanese spirit while cooking and chatting, we had lots of fun there. They do BYO, but not bring your beer, wine is fine. We brought a pack of our favorite beer one night, but the manager told us choosing their beer only, which is fine.... More

This place is the real deal. Not only is the food served piping hot, the flavours are the authentic punch you in the face intense. Serving sizes are huge and prices are reasonable.

I used to go there very regularly for lunch during 2012, and the food were great. But then something kind of change and their food hasn't been the same high quality as before. The pork now looks to have more of the fat on it than actual meat (while before, I could barely see or taste the fat) and feel... More

My wife is Japanese. We had dinner at JFX on the recommendation of a friend. The decor is basic, but the food is tasty and authentic. For entree we had the beef yukke (marinated raw beef). It's basically the Japanese equivalent of steak tartare...now prohibited in Japan due to health regulations. Very nice! We then a selection of dishes from... More
