Awesome food. Unique choices. You won't be disappointed. Try the Honda Ya Chicken Salad! Yakitori is always great! Black Sesame ice cream for dessert! Yum

My son and I ate here on a Sunday evening about 7:00pm and there was 30 minute wait. The staff were cordial and attentive and the food was a pleasing balance between cost and quality. I felt good about the value proposition for this restaurant....More
