Ok to be fair, I don't eat Japanese food. Way to boring for me. With that said, my family loves it and the Japan Restaurant. We have been here for over 30 years and eaten there through all the management changes. My daughter even worked...More

Food tasty and served nicely altough I had order a Tempura dish and they brought me something quite different. Waitress didn't now the difference, but they did correct it. As this restaurant lacks atmosphere its good for a quick bite only
