We used to come here for lunch and their fun bento box. This time could not have the box. The two dishes we ordered had way too much celery and onions, making the dishes not at all enjoyable. We were the only people there.

The food, prices and service are all good which is why they are often very busy. On our last visit we only had a 20 minutes wait but sometimes could be longer. It is well worth it and they do take reservations.
