Enjoyed myself and ordered plenty of food. Must try the raw beef. Love the Salmon Don that has the tamagoyaki and salmon bits hidden under the rice. Desserts are a surprise as the cotton candy impressed all the diners around.

Wow! The menu looked a wee pricey for lunch. BUT wait until your order arrives. It's the nicest Japanese I've tasted and portions are generous. You won't be disappointed.
