I like this place. It's tucked away in a large parking lot on the edge of a set of buildings. The food is great and the service was excellent. The entrees were reasonably priced and the experience is everything I expect from a Japanese American...More

I should give 3,5 for this one. Everything was goot but it wasn't great. First the location is strange. We walk to the place and the street is very dark we could not see the restaurant from the street and thought it was close. We...More
