“A good fun feed”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Japanese often means formal and quiet - but not this place. There is plenty of noise as orders and greetings are shouted from the kitchen. The friendly wait staff will come to your table at the push of a button, and the food is beautiful.

Expect to order about two or three dishes for per person in your group, and spend about $25 per head plus drinks. You can order gradually through the night, just push the pager button on your table and place the next round of food. The food will arrive as it's cooked so don't expect all your food to arrive at the same time.

Great for families with kids, couples or groups. Gets noisier later in the night.

“Authentic!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Well, we assume it is authentic! Greeted by drum beating and shouts for the staff.
Efficient service, good food, good price.
In the same building as Berkeley Cinema this is an excellent place for a meal before or after the movie.
