Home cooked feel to the food. Comforting. Range in menu suits my taste. Cozy ambience. Friendly staff. Whenever we think of jap food, you know where we will be
Friendly staff, good food and reasonable prices. Always a delight to return and have a meal. Ambience is casual and the menu selection fits what we want to have
Food are fresh and delicious , staff are friendly and helpful . This is my second visit to this restaurant , I will recommend my friends to them.
The food is reasonably priced and it is a very basic Jap restaurant with a team of efficient staff. Orders are processed fast and food quality is pretty good for the price.
Quite close by to my home, and I had a Groupon voucher which saved me $20, so I headed there with my family. The quality of Japanese sushi was very average, but their set meals were value for money (too bad the voucher did not cover those). Average food and atmosphere.
quite a cosy dinning environment. The food are nice and the staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable too. It a good place to hang out with old friends and catch up on things that happened.
A really quiet place on a weekday night. Menu must be at least 10 years old. Gst is still 3% on the menu. Iced water is chargeable.
