I visited this place based on a friend's recommendation. He told me this was a really weird place, then I decided to come check it out with my gf. Am I glad to find this place? however, it took me half an hour to find it though.
It is a tiny restaurant so I didn't expect too much. only five tables, but when we got there it was packed. waited for 15 mins and got seated. Based on the waitress' recommendation as a first time comer, we got spicy sashimi salad, the handmade ebi gyoza, volcano roll (not on the menu but definitely got to get it! the visual effect is totally worth it) assorted tempura and SPiCY AGEDASHI TOFU !!! OMG that tofu is phenominal........I have never tasted spicy tofu this amazing. Its hard to describe to you but that is why you have got to try it yourself.
oh this restaurant is really different, we got two complimentary dishes- scallop and something really cool but cant remember the name.
The presentation is what made every dish more tasty. The chefs are truly artists. every dish has different style and color. It satisfied your eyes as well as your stomache.
The service is friendly. Our tea and water were never empty. When we needed help ordering, they were really helpful to give good suggestions (which I doubt any of the dishes could go wrong). smiles seem to be never ending for them too. Give us more pleasant feelings througout the meal.
The decor is different and we reallly like the type of music they played there. Jazzy and Japanese mixed together.
But I think they really need to get more seatings and more privacy for the table. I had seem people waiting outside for half an hour for a table which would be the downside.
Values are reasonable. Not too cheap nor expensive on the average side. Really depend what you order. Our bill came to 40 something. and some to take home.
Overall I am really glad my friend recommended to us. We will for sure be back (but reservation is neccesary ).

We have been going to this place for 8 years!!! Probably more than that. This place is like our kitchen. Good decent food. Always feel fresh and tons of meat and noodle. I always order 15 large, and my wife always order 44 large. Now my two kids order the same thing. Never change. Super friendly servers that always talk to us and sometimes on holiday, gave our kids bonus dishes that they serve to staff. We love the place.
