The food is just so-so. Overly salty miso soup, blah California roll. Chicken teriyaki not good at all: teriyaki sauce was of the consistency of aspic/jello, and tasteless. Chicken itself blah. Service was very poor. What with all the many many similar places around, there's no reason for us to go back to this one.
