If you want an authentic Japanese teahouse experience then this is the place. Sushi bar in the back is very good as well. I've been here many times and can't say I've been disappointed once. This is where the locals eat. Good value.

Delicious local food. Quick wait help. Loved convenience of food when I'm on the go, instead of fast food! Too bad fire happened, hope they rebuild soon!!!
