Fantastic Japanese style pub experience. If you are going to come here and complain about the portion size please go to pasta jays instead. The saki selection is amazing and the size of the restaurant truly reminds me of any great watering hole in Tokyo....More

It's like a typical Japanese restaurant...small and overpriced. It opens at 5:00 p.m....if you want a seat, you must be prepared to wait in line prior. The foods are okay...service is good...but I will probably not return due to its price.

A more traditional approach to Japanese food and drink is this small, friendly restaurant. The service is more personnel and caring and the other diners are jovial. The food is excellent, as is the sake offerings.Try the fresh sardines in season. Exceptional!
