I drove past this place for years thinking it was a dive. But one day, someone said we really needed to try it as it's authentic Japanese. My husband and I are really happy we did.
This is not a Sushi joint and it's not Benihana's. It is a Japanese restaurant- Japan style. Their very extensive menu covers an amazing array of small plates and full meals. Yes, it includes sushi and sashimi. Yes, they have hibachi foods, but this is a place you come to savor the treasures of Japan's more "unique" dishes. For example, I had sea urchin, squid and mackerel. There are many other dishes that are unusual and possibly a bit of a stretch for non-Japanese people. But the fact that they are on the menu says that this place is for real.
The atmosphere itself is strange. The building is strange and definitely does not have the "curb appeal" that other Japanese places have. But, if you're brave enough to wind your way to the back and through the doors to the restaurant, you'll be grateful you found this little gem.
Prices are reasonable in my opinion. From $4 for small appetizer type plates to $much more for high end dishes. We spent about $77 for 3 beers and approximately 8 small dishes including the sea urchin which was more expensive. Overall, the prices are average for what one would pay in a sushi joint in Atlanta, but the quality of food and the selection is way better.
I would highly recommend the experience at least once.
