bustling bar with pleasant service, TV sets showing a variety of sports and lots of happy people. In center of Japantown, so there is some local color outside too. If you want to eat in the restaurant area be sure to make a reservation!

If you want the typical hibachi performance of your food cooked in front of you, this is it. I particularly liked the flaming and smoking volcano made out of onion rings. There is also a full sushi bar, if you want it instead or for...More
