We had bento box lunch. Had good selections on the menu and had special off menu items for October. Sashimi was excellent and is my favorite at Japanese restaurants. Wait staff was great and super fast. Good value for the money.

Increible! Calidad-precio super recomendable. Sishar, un camarero nepalí genial. Todo lo ofrecido, buenísimo. Volveríamos 100.000 veces. Unforgettable! Price-quality advisable. Sishar, a waiter coming from Nepal, very friendly. Everything he offered was very tasty. We would come again 100.000 times.
