My wife and I decided to have lunch at this restaurant. I've have eaten here many times before for parties and dinner. The place hasn't change a bit in twenty years. The front has table sitting service. In the back side of the restaurant is the traditional teahouse service for larger parties where the guest sits on cushions on the tatami mat floors. There is also a Sushi Bar in the back and a Koi pond for a Zen like dining experience. The restaurant serves Japanese and Chinese foods. The menu is quite dated but the food is tasty. They offer a number of combination plates to choose from. I highly recommend the Hanamaulu Fried Ginger Chicken which this restaurant is famous for. Deep fried chopped chicken dipped in slightly sweet ginger batter. You can order a box of Hanamaulu Chicken for $9 to bring home to eat later. It is that good. The wait service was very good. The staff there is friendly and helpful in making your selection. On the weekdays, the restaurant is open for lunch but not on the weekends. The weekends the restaurant is open for dinner service. They offer a Japanese Buffet on the weekend for $27.00 per person. I haven't tried the buffet but some of my friends says it pretty good. I would recommend eating here.
