We have visited this place since many years ago, but now we saw it like could use a really good update. We went to a Teppanyaki table and waited for the cook a long time. It seemed they had only two cooks and a full...More

Don't worry about going on lunch time, it's not as full as nagaoka and you'll quickly get a table. Recommended to go with friends or family so you can take the tepanyaki table if you prefer, but private tables are great too. There's a long...More

Small portions even to European standards. Very slow service, poor selection of drinks. Outdated building and interior. Unfriendly menu. Only natural juice served with lots of ice, so no juice. Much better REAL Japanese options around. I won't recommend it for a business or romantic...More

You have to arrive early ! This place gets packed from around 2:00 PM. All tables are teppanyaki and staff is kind. Very tasty dishes, well prepared and with very good quality, and this restaurant has reasonable prices, definitely a place to return.

It's a very nice place, if somewhat dated in an 80's style, the quality of the food and value/price cannot be beat, the yakitori are prepared in the traditional bar food style from Japan and the choices are "exotic" for some but very good. The...More
