Dining here is a unique experience. The wait staff and chef boisterously greet every customer who enters and say goodbye to everyone who leaves. They also tell each customer to "enjoy" every time a beer is served. All of the greetings are spoken in Japanese!...More

Very short wait, we sat at the counter and enjoyed the theatrics from the staff. Ordered 'regular ramen set' which consisted of draft beer + kara-age (fried chicken) + ramen with spicy miso. Enjoyed it very much and highly recommended. Soup stock was excellent.

Yummy yakitori, I think it is better than the little tokyo one. They know how to make their chicken liver! Only problem is the waiting staff yells the whole time, gets so loud that it is hard to carry a conversation.
