We used to go to this restaurant quite a bit, and then it closed down for a while. I am happy to say it is back open in doing a very good dinner once again. Ninja roll is a must try!

The best food for timpanyaki. Good amount with enough for leftovers. Prices are good for what you are getting.👍

Miso soup was average, pot stickers soggy, bland, tasteless with no hot oil or vinegar to add. They served beer but no wine. I don't drink beer. Totally lacking any atmosphere. Place was dark, large, and empty. I won't go there again.
