Everytime we crave for a Bento box this is the place to go. The Hibachi courses is also good. Service is fast, delicious and prices are reasonable. The servers are courteous, friendly and attentive. Location is good. The restaurant is clean and atmosphere is relaxing.

Went there for my husband's birthday. It was really nice and cozy place. Staff is friendly and the food is good. I just wish our chief spoke better English and had more tricks.
