Went there with family. Wife was having some doubt and was planning to have supper after the meal with my 3 kids. But we ended up ordering more and was totally satisfy with the food. Must try the set (55,000 yen) and the grill fugu.

Friendly,helpful staff with really fresh fugu. I recommend the charcoal grilled option - the fish was so fresh it was still moving (I tried sashimi, skin, deep fried and charcoal). Overall the place was professional and friendly. A great experience.
