Great casual atmosphere with no frills. This place is not very big so it feels like a casual cafe dining experience - definitely not fancy or fine dining. Food is ok but prices not the cheapest.

We visit regularly.

This is a great little restaurant, not flash but good food with an extensive Japanese menu.
