We come here regularly... it's my hubby's favourite restaurant. The food is really tasty and they've added more menu items. The food quality is always great and we always enjoy our meal. The iPad menu is a really cool idea but it takes a bit of time to master, however, if you want to order something non-standard (e.g. order your california roll without fish eggs) then it's a bit of a pain. The service is spotty depending on which server you get. Some are great and attentive but others not so much. Generally a good experience if you are willing to overlook the variability of the service.

Greeted at the door with hello.. Table for four? Menu or no? She meant do you want a LA carte or all you can eat. We didnt understand so said yes we want menus. Long island ice tea was actually rum and coke but I'm easy going and didnt complain. After we ordered amd repeated ourselves several times, another server came over and confirmed the details of our order a few minutes later. Pop glasses for kids were small and theres no free refills. Food was average except for chicken. It was a paper thin battered overcooked to leather texture. Realized too late to complain. Too polite daughter didnt mention it and ate everything else instead. We had bento boxes. My salmon was ok but very tiny. Gyoza was beyond gross. Tried to pay with debit but they dont offer it and instead encourage you to use their personally owned high fee ABM. Not impressed.. we used visa. Overall, there's tons of better alternatives for Japanese. Don't bother.

I came here with a girlfriend for lunch one day. The heater had broken down so the restaurant was freezing. Regardless we were served by friendly waiters. They gave us an iPad and took our drink orders but didn't explain how to order using the iPad. We kind of guessed our way through the ordering and hoped for the best. When food started coming to our table we knew we ordered correctly, but I'm not sure that's the best customer experience? Hoping that you'll get food? Anyways the food was average, some things came cold. When we asked for cheese cake the lady said she had it for us in the back and she'd bring it out when we finished our food but when we finished our food they had run out of cheesecake. Probably won't go here again.

Service was slow, wait staff kept forgetting what we ordered. Surly staff, Felt hurried, like they wanted us to leave. Nothing special.
