Came here for a quick lunch in March and while it doesn't have a high end flair, it doesn't try or need it as it is a simple izakaya serving tasty Japanese food.
We had a lunch set which wasn't too expensive and the portions were decent and tasted great.

Booked a table for dinner before a show, good food, quick and friendly service. Only downside was it was rather cold as the front door was kept permanently open. Also the choice of background music (classical piano) didn't really seem to fit the vibe of the place.
