I was recommended by a good friend of mine. We decided to try lunch because of the pricing. We arrived at 11:30am and we were seated right away. The seating area was very private. The service was excellent, the server even went downstairs to buy cigarette for me. Crab set lunch was very fresh and I recommended for someone dining... More

If you're ok with a teaspoon of crab in the crab salad and a hot stone for the beef that is cold when brought to the table then this is the place for you.

The restaurant was highly recommended by our foodie friend who has visited Japan every year. We were amazed by entering the restaurant through its deco in very traditional Japanese setting. Food was excellent but $$$$, however, you will definitely find the value. Service was excellent with very traditional Japanese culture, very attentive. Tips: try both the crab set as well... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor for helping me find this place. It's located in an office building, but the restaurant is decorated like a seaside Japanese outdoor restaurant. Crab (aka. kani) is the featured menu item, and my wife and I had a feast. Price is on the expensive side for me, but I still rate the overall experience as Very Good.

A wonderful surprise right next to The Peninsular where we were staying and recommended by concierge. On the 9th floor of an office building but decorated in magical Japanese garden setting with various rooms as well as communal eating area. Our family had an amazing meal probably the best as we are all crab fans and added to the course... More
