A rare Japanese restaurant owned and run by Japanese. All the food is well prepared and comes out piping hot. Great specials that change monthly.

We eat here a lot and hands down this is the best place for authentic Japanese food. Service is excellent food is out of this world and the gourmet deserts are made by the owner. It's a must if you are in the area.
