I'm in love with the Okinomiyaki! Also the Salmon Sakedon and the Chicken Gyozas. And not too pricey.

We stumbled upon this restaurant at lunchtime. It looked inviting, so in we went. It is authentically Japanese with a pleasant ambience. Our waitress was efficient and friendly and the three dishes we had ranged from very good to excellent. We shall certainly return.

hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
