Nice place to spend with a family or business associates. Actually you can enjoy the atmosphere and pure Japanese cuisine during long 2-3 hours.

I had dinner at this restaurant last night with my husband, and found the dinner and experience extremely disappointing and frustrating. It was like walking into one big con! After choosing our 'set menu" of black cod and salmon, we were told we wouldn't know...More
