We went with friends to celebrate the wife's birthday. Typical of all the Japanese steak houses, we sat around a large grill and enjoyed the entertaining cookery of the chef. The food was very good and we enjoyed ourselves.

First time going there with the family. Food and decor was average at best. Not enough rice for everybody at the table. Reminded me of fast food more so than "fine dining". However, our chef was entertaining and funny.
