Place simple but fantastic Japanese food! For me, the best Japanese Barbecue was my first time, but until now was one who did.

t was a nice experience. The meats were good. My nephew did all the cooking on the BBQ at the table. The place was pretty smoky. Maybe the fans were working fast enough because it was sure crowded. Once this large party left, it was nice and quiet. The service was efficient but not the friendliest. I felt "rushed" eating.

smoky and a little tattered hole in the wall but it is the best bbq in town. one of a few places where their meat is so fresh they will serve it as sashimi!
