The food was okay, except for the pile on the floor of their kitchen. Pieces of the walls were missing. Everything looked run down. Our waitress did a good job. Was afraid to use their restrooms. At least they were open late.

Dinner was teriyaki steak, katsu and tempura along with a bowl of Miso soup and salad. I always enjoy their Miso soup and cool salad dish, very refreshing. We also had some hot green tea. The tempura was very good, potato, shrimp, and green beans.

The food was very good for my friend who can "eat anything". But for myself the gluten free options are non existent. I ended up with grilled salmon and rice. It was good but I wouldn't choose this place if you can't have soy sauce....More
