“Typical Japanese cook in front of you, good service, nice restaurant”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

In comparison to other Japanese restaurants that cook in front of you I'd say this one is pretty average. The menu is very fishy, not alot of choice if you don't like fish. There is an aweful lot of food to eat and the serer is great at getting you fresh drinks.
