Location and contact

A hundred-year-old zelkova beam and a mosaic wall. The restaurant, with its array of Japanese and Western antique furniture, has an atmosphere where art-nouveau and Japanese style meet, and it is just like a museum. Not only does the counter feature a hot griddle arranged in a circle ? designed in the image of the deep sea ? but so do the private rooms, where your dedicated chef cooks in front of you.

Was impressed the first time I was there a few years ago and decided to bring my daughter there this time. It was ok.. but not wow wow. But the chef’s cooking is still something for the eyes to enjoy

In one word “delicious”. We went off the set menu and opted for the premium tenderloin. Everything is cooked in front of you. We began with a mini Caesar salad serviced with big cubes of delicious bacon. Followed with a course of M mushrooms and...More

We had a pleasant evening in this attractive restaurant. Service was attentive and polite. Pricing is extremely high. Kobe beef selection was probably consistent with other restaurants. However other entrees and appetizers were very expensive and portions minimal. Single asparagus spears at $20, Caesar salad...More
