We had a group of 10 for a birthday and got two 4-person banquets plus a couple of entrees and mains. Very tasty and enjoyed by all. The service was good too.

We went here for a birthday dinner and were very happy with the quality of the food, service and prices. The sushi was delicious, as were the soba noodles and the unagi.
