Call ahead for reservations. Reasonably priced. Fun to cook the food over the table grills. Small but quaint.

I love this place!! its a tepanyaki style japanese place. You get your meat and cook it on the grill in your table. They have really good deals on family packages on week days. They also close the kitchen at 12am :)
