This was only our second time to eat Japanese food and we were surprised that we liked it so much. Neither my husband nor I were very hungry, so we ordered a dinner to share. It was enough food and not only very good, but...More

Reasonably priced. They have $5/$7/$9 specials from 7-11pm. I had the chicken katsu curry, huge portions, and delicious.
