This used to be my go to Japanese family styled restaurant in Cerritos. It used to offer more interesting daily dishes that changes with season and market availability. I find the chef no longer use top notch ingredients, but focused on more affordable dishes that seemed to cater to the clientele he is after. Many of the more delicate and specialty dishes have disappeared from the menu. The aim is to either get the omakase patrons to pay $80 a head or serve set menu items for quick turn around. I no longer find the restaurant daring and eccentric as it first started. Some of the basic dishes are still pretty good, I had their uni don, which used to be my favorite and find it disappointing. They no longer source the top notch stuff, the ones I had now are slightly bitter and lacking the natural sweetness they used to offer.
