Fabulous service, incredible chef's special plate, the steak absolutely melts in your mouth, with a garlic chip. One of my two favorite restaurants in the world.

Authentic Japanese cuisine. I am pretty sure that eating here is like dining in Tokyo. Located in midtown this cozy restaurant has a pre-fix menu that will awaken your tastebuds. Great service and the freshest sashimi. A real hidden gem!
