We went with expectations set by previous TripAdvisor reviewers. Thus we did not expect fancy atmosphere, superb service or lavish dishes. However, we did expect a rustic atmosphere and food that was described as fresh, homemade, and authentic Japanese fare.
While there was only one other party of 4 and the two of us in the dining room, it took over an hour to get our food. It appears that the chef cooks ONE dish at a time. No problem as we expected slow service. That gave us the opportunity to observe first hand how things were prepared as we had a direct view of the kitchen.
Everything we saw, other than sushi, was FROZEN, not fresh. Even the potsticker dumplings were frozen, prepared food.
Our squid appetizer and two main entrees tasted bland. The vegetables in the stir fry were frozen not fresh. And, their prices are NOT cheap!
We had nothing that was good or special and would never return.
The couple running the place were nice but does not make up for the disappointing food.
