“Not my Cup of Tea”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

If you have never been to a typical Japanese Restaurant you might be forgiven for thinking this is good food. The food is not the best I would not go again.

“Too much butter and ceremony!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

This is part of a chain and thought it has a wild client entertainment regime with customers tempted to catch thron food in the mouth, the food itself is very heavy - cooked in butter. Not really a healthy eating experience.

“real japanese or not, it's good food and good fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2010

I'm also not 100% sure whether this is really authentic japanese or not. But the place is very cosy, and the cook cooking everything just in front of you is spectacular, and the food is delicious! If you properly wear the kimono which they offer you at the entry, you can also try and catch on-the-fly food! I enjoyed this several times, quite a lot, both as a romantic place or for groups (you all sit around the cook, some 10-12 seats). It's not in the downtown though, so you'll need a car to get there.

This is not very authentic. Real Japanese restaurants don't throw food at their customers to catch! But it can be quite fun for a group
