THE FOOD
We ordered Tonkatsu (a traditional deep-fried pork cutlet), it came on a plate with finely cut cabbage, a tomato, parsley and sauce and what seemed like english mustard. The side dishes it comes with are a bowl of white rice, miso soup and a pickled raddish and cucumber.
The food tasted great, my girlfriend (from a restaurant family) liked their Tonkatsu alot.
Green tea was provided, and we also ordered a bottle of Sake (Nihonshu - it tasted so-so), it came with sumami (cooked seaweed strands).

VALUE:
The menu is in Japanese, but roughly I think it said Tonkatsu was 1500Yen. Beer was 600Yen, though we ordered Sake. Our total bill for the two of us was 3700 Yen.

THE SERVICE:
This was great, the old couple working their were very polite and warm, constantly providing us with extra hot towels and green tea when we were running low. Even offering me extra salad when I finished my first helping, which I gladly accepted.

APPEARANCE:
It is a small narrow restaurant on the main street, easily missed as it is not overly bold from the outside. The front of the restaurant is of a modern take on traditional Japanese screen doors, but is easily missed if you can't read Kana. The sign for the restaurant is written in large white Kana characters on a black background and can be viewed from the road side, either: とんき(hiragana)トンキ(katakana), I can't remember which.
Inside there are two options for seating, either in the back with a more traditional tatami matted room, with seating upon zabuton cushions. We chose to sit at the white counter, where the food is cooked in front of you.
The restaurant looked like new; it was very clean.
The atmosphere was quiet due to there only being a few other couples dining when we went (Friday 7pm), but was pleasant.
