The red lantern and the kanji are not the only Japanese things which attract you here.As you walk past you can see the interior of the restaraunt with its pebbled entrance walk and stools giving you a clear whisper of the waiting ambiance.The staff who greet you are warm in their irrashaimase in traditional Japanese unison.

The chef is truly Japanese form Tokyo.the silent TV monitors take you on a dirigibles view of Tokyo's skyline while you wander through the menu.
The menu is simple and easy to read with the drinks and food menu in one book so you don't struggle with varying sizes of menus for making a decision.

The menu is brief but yet wide in its coverage.They make an excellent ebi tempura with large prawns and also a tonkatsu.They have several chicken dishes to perhaps cater to the north Indian palate but dont mercifully make natto regularly for the same reason!
I really liked the food.The sushi is from rolls but you get a generous 8 pieces in one plate.The wasabi is genuine and the aroma is refreshing.
They have a good choice of sake and shochu as well as several wines and other non Japanese drinks
The atmosphere is like a Japanese neighbourhood restaurant and its location on a busy floor of the mall is like an oasis of calm inside away from the bustling sounds outside.
Its never too crowded so you can get a table; its also not too empty to make you feel that you are in it alone!

If you like Japanese food then you must go to izakaya.If you dont know what it is, then you must go for an introductory experience.Perhaps the staff will explain better than what they did to us.Thee can also add chopstick use lessons for beginners!

The restarunt is not expensive but neither is it a daily use place Reasionable cost for good food!

After spending some time in Japan, I can honestly say that the food here is really up to Japanese standards. The portions are large and the prices relatively low - great value for money!

The atmosphere was the only downside of this restaurant - it was almost empty and looked a bit sad. However, we were there during lunchtime, so maybe there is more people in the evenings. I didn't like the fact that they had international music instead of Japanese - this surely effected the atmosphere a lot.
