Always great food and service. Had many dishes, butterfish, steak, duck, sushi, all of them are excellent. I really like the edamame (steam green soya bean pods) instead of bread and they are very tasty.

They are not open for lunch. They may do brunch on some special occasions. As far as online orders, I do not think you can order on line.
