Jizo please review your ordering system! We came here with a group of 12 for dinner. Jizo confused three of our orders and inisited it was our table's fault for ordering incorrectly. Because you order and pay before your meal arrives they had no incentive...More

Very close to the Octagon. The restaurant was busy when I came in for lunch. The staff seemed to be efficient but lacking customer care which was okay because the place was packed. I recommend sitting upstairs which has a more peaceful atmosphere than downstairs....More
