I've been a frequent diner at this restaurant for years. Fresh ingredients, nice presentations, decent sake list. You can't even really see it from the road, but drive to the rear of this strip center and be prepared for a feast.

This spot is a bit out of the way, but it is worth the trip. Large bar for seating. Nothing left to say, but need 100 characters

I was very disappointed with the service. It took her 10 mins to greet us, Then another 10 to bring us back our drinks. The eel sauce seemed to be watered down. But idk I'm willing to give everywhere a second shot.
