We were looking forward to our evening out with family for a while. We arrived on time, got seated at a table (next to a storage room door). We had the tasting menu with sake pairings. The first 2 courses took a very long time...More

A delightful experience in a small, quaint bistro in Alexandria. The menu is price fixe, but you are given the option of an upgrade and by all means, I would very much recommend it. The service was very personal, the food delicious, and the ambiance...More

Wonderful, inventive food that never disappoints. The menu changes daily and is always fresh, seasonal, and creative. The Chef’s flavors are perfect. I have eaten here many times and it is wonderful every season of the year.

This excellent Japanese restaurant is so small and unobtrusive from the outside that we almost missed the entrance. Once inside though, the atmosphere is cosy and the food is delicious. The chef serves five courses of his own choosing. Each was exceptional from the scallops...More
