We enjoyed a wonderful lunch set at Yakiniku today. Prices are reasonable for Japanese food and the quality and flavor are exceptional. The lunch menu includes 10 different options with a variety of meat and fish sets. Yakiniku style cooking is a slow paced affair...More

Wagyu beef for bbq is excellent. I strongly recommend their beef. If u like beef tongue then must try, they sell it with different ways of marinated sauce. Is perfect & well worth for value.
