Nice place with delicious food. Good for couples and friends. The way they serve is quite interesting. The price is a little bit over. But good environment.

Upon my third visit to this local Japanese restaurant, we came with family including 9&11 year old granddaughters who claimed each dish as their favourite! It’s a busy environment with two sittings available - 6-8 and then the later sitting. With the younger children we...More
