I journeyed to this hole in the wall, locating it by the line outside at 6pm on a Friday evening. As I walked up, I spotted a sign in the window requesting that we pay in cash or Canadian debit cards only, so I had to forfeit my space in line to go get some cash. Though back in 10 mins, the line had doubled. Yet, based on the other Trip advisor reviews, I stuck it out, and boy am I glad I did!
I was admitted within 40mins and was given a seat at the bar. Other people had called ahead and ordered take-out, so that is an option if you hate lines/waiting. I had the Japanese ravioli (pork potsticker), beef kalbi, and a yuzu with sake. The main course was ready before the appetizer was, and I would say about 5 mins for everything to be cooked on the grill/stove. Everything tasted wonderful! Another single diner beside me ordered using the hand written menu options as papers on the wall and had a beautifully arranged lobster dish.
Though crowded, I received fabulous service with warm and friendly smiles and recommendations given by both the waitress and the chefs. I highly recommend it.
