I feel like i am in Japan having meal in their local restaurant with relaxing and comfortable ambience even though the restaurant is packed with customers. We can enjoy the surrounding while waiting for the food to be served which is quite a long time as they are always full house during dinner hour.
I love their soft shell crabs which is crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. We enjoyed our food very much although it takes a long time to be served but we enjoy the wait. I will definitely come back to the restaurant in the future.
The usual dish I'd have there is the Oyako Don or Udon Noodles as the main course, both are filling and taste really good. For side dishes I will usually order the Yakitori which is marinated and grilled nicely. I would also share a basket of soft shelled crab there which is a must have for anyone visiting.
The atmosphere is nice as you will feel like you're in a zen garden and if you come in a big group you'll get your own private room to dine in which is really comfortable.
Tips for first time customers, please call and make reservations for dinner unless you want to go hungry. It is packed for dinner even on weekdays.
