We came after seeing so many positive reviews about this place. Yes the food is truly Japanese & generous in size. I enjoyed my RIN bento with many varieties on the plate. Good service & highly recommend to anyone.

We didn't book and the place was full. Staff made room for us. Great service, lovely food. Staff assisted us with choices as first taste of real Japanese food.
