We ended up seated at 6:30pm and were at first at a table at the front of the restaurant but it was a tight squeeze so we were moved to the back which was better. But the waitress who moved us, didn't tell anyone else so we had to wait a bit before we could get someone else's attention for menus and water. Anyway after this little hiccup everything else went smoothly.
We ordered a few things to share:
- Tori kara - fried chicken
- Agedashi tofu
- Double salmon roll and spicy tuna roll
- Wagyu sukiyaki hotpot
It's a family style casual restaurant. So casual that one of our neighbouring diners sat cross legged and barefoot on her chair...The food comes out quickly and it's homely and mostly satisfying.
The tempura is probably the stand out for me and it came with a type of tartare sauce mayo rather than the usual soy based ponzu which was delicious. The fried chicken was also good. The hotpot was a good serving size with lots of thinly sliced beef and mixed mushrooms.
The sushi rolls were probably the disappointment as the fish wasn't very generous and with the tuna one, the spicy sauce completely overpowered the little fish that was there to the point of obliteration.
Other than that, as a neighbourhood restaurant for a Japanese fix it's a dependable option.
