Been going here since it opened as well as when is was on Denman. My all time favourite is the Katsu Curry. YUM!!!!! It is not the kind of Japanese curry you make at home or at your Japanese friend's place, but it's equally awesome and creamy. The Shrimp cocktail is delicious as well. We have tried almost everythign on the menu. Yes, the prices have gone up and the side salad that came included with some of the dishes is no longer there, but all restaurants that have been running a long time has had to make similar adjustments.
We have continued to go here because of the food. Sometimes, the service is lacking since there is only one staff/server in the dining room. At times, this causes her to be awkwardly rude and disrespectful. If the place is packed, you may be asked to leave before you are ready to leave! This is my only complaint.
BTW, the chef is Japanese and his wife, the server, is Korean.

This is not authentic Japanese food. Some looked like Korean style and the flavours were not authetic. I think they boast of their Kamameshi and other restaurants don't make it, but it is very bland and can be better duplicated by putting your own cuts of meat and veges into your rice cooker- better value, too. too bad. Disappointed. Will not go there again. I went there with a Japanese friend and we have never gone back.
