I used to come here a lot.it was reasonably priced with good food. The food is ok and more expensive. The dessert was bad, my friend and I had the coffee jelly and it was covered in sugar, it basically tasted of molasses and nothing...More

Dishes are of average taste, a bit pricey compared to others like them. The saving grace in this place is the green tea which is just as well as it is a tea house after all. They need to put more flavour in their sauces...More

Very tasty food especially the steak and salmon dishes. They supply generous proportions. It is an enjoyable small restaurant to share a meal with friends and parking is not a problem. Conversation is not spoiled by too much surrounding noise.

Kawasemi used to be a favourite restaurant. Not any more. On a recent visit floor was filthy, chairs dirty and stained. Food was very average but had become expensive. Chunky sashimi betrayed a novice chef. We were all crammed into one room and so it...More
