“Average, really.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We ate here because of the reviews online.

And was really disappointed.

For Japanese/Korean, it was really bad. Not even average. Price is expensive considering the restaurants around.

I think this is a different change from the normal fare in the area, but in itself the food is not food.

“Home cooked Japanese fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

The chef prepares the food with much care and attention. Quality fare is served as he ensures that food is prepared individually and tastefully. Hence, service can be slow because quality is not compromised. Good food with fair price.

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We had one dinner, with sushi, udon tempura and yakitori. All delicious and a good choice if you are a little tired (and your stomach feeling a little bad) after indian currys and chinese food. The owner is also very nice! We would recommend it!

“Expensive but yummy bibimbap!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

I ordered the following:
pork bibimbap (top notch, ask for a raw egg to mix in),
Saba fish (really good),
chicken yakitori (good),
Shishamo (slightly undercooked),
California handroll (good and fresh, but smaller than most I've seen)
King of Oolong tea (fragrant and light, serves 2)

The boss gave us a free dessert in the end, up to us to choose what we wanted. We got the apple pie and it was really yummy. The decor was great and the place is clean. Though a little expensive, I had a good meal there.
