Plenty to choose from for non-sushi fans, particularly the giant ramen soups and the short rib entree. Cocktails are expertly made with top-shelf choices, and an impressive wine... More

We had a Bento box with Yuzu salmon a bento box with chicken Katsu, and lunch platter of Katsu chicken. Bento boxes were very tasty and filling, with green salad, potato salad, potato croquettes and... More
