“Savory meal, great entertainment”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

This was our first visit, and I made reservations so we could celebrate a birthday. We waited ~5 minutes for our table, and thoroughly enjoyed the meal, service, knife expertise and juggling by our chef, Linn. We'll return and I suggest you make reservations since customers were turned away who had just dropped in to eat. The restaurant was packed with happy faces. It was entertaining enough to keep our 1-year old grandson stimulated.

“Be prepared to wait for a table”
Reviewed July 17, 2010

This is a good Japanese restaurant that seems always to be crowded. The food is quite good but service can be slow.
