It's a nice place to eat, play some Japanese music in the back ground would be nice. Expand menu to more Japanese foods.

We went with a party of 6 or so and really enjoyed the food. We had hibachi chicken and noodles as well. They were sweet, but the chicken and noodles mixed with the rice was great! I would recommend this place for sure.

My wife and I live in Somerset and have been going there since it opened. There have been changes in staffing and management, but the food has stayed consistent. Great portions and taste. Of course, with a lot of staff changes, service is unpredictable, but...More
