Generally speaking Kaname is a welcoming dining environment. George Kaname is a vociferous, friendly host and an unabashed Yankee baseball fan. The menu is rather small in terms of choice but what is available is quite good. I have been there numerous times and in this case predicability is a positive quality. The language proficiency of the wait staff can vary from server to server but it never detracts from the total dining experience. Another plus is that it is reasonably priced across the entire menu.
