Dishes are of average taste, a bit pricey compared to others like them. The saving grace in this place is the green tea which is just as well as it is a tea house after all. They need to put more flavour in their sauces...More

Went there last week for another impromptu lunch. Haven't been since the last review but will not be hurrying back. Service slow and the experience well disappointing to say the least. Food unexceptional. Will not be back in a hurry.

Very tasty food especially the steak and salmon dishes. They supply generous proportions. It is an enjoyable small restaurant to share a meal with friends and parking is not a problem. Conversation is not spoiled by too much surrounding noise.
