Our server was incredibly helpful (maybe more hands-on than I'd prefer but excellent service) and all the food was absolutely divine. I come here a lot and it was the perfect place to being my family visiting from out of town

Dinner plates arent the best, service was pretty average. Appetizers were good. Desserts were good but small. Prices were very fair although the skewers were tiny. Not as good as the reviews said. Very average japanese spot in my honest and humble opinion

Fun spot to visit any night of the week. I was particularly pleased that they were open pretty late. It’s a cozy, casual place with good cocktails and a very wide variety of snacks for very reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I’m happy to have another late night retreat to add to my list.

I wish they will bring back fried Ika rings.
This hasn’t been placed back on the menu because of covid 19 limited menu.

Other than that the place os always great for any occasion.
