Love eating here. Small space, but cozy. Ate the pork katsu curry and salad combo, Yum! Hubby had kushikatsu, fried oysters, croquette, and yakitori... yummy! With a beer and iced tea... bill came out to $60. Prices are a bit high, but food is awesome!

This is a neighborhood Japanese restaurant. Lots of locals. Food is simple and solid. Service is friendly but spotty. Come once every trip
