My fiance an I have eaten here several times and while the food is very good, the wait times are hard to bare. The last visit we ended up paying for our drinks and leaving without eating as an hour had already passed and we...More

This restaurant is one we always come back to when we want something consistent and tasty, good choice of food, meat or vegetarian. The wine list should be updated though. Deep fried bananas ice cream and chocolate sauce yum!

Want with a group with a wide age range. Everyone left happy. They have an extensive menu and their bento boxes are great. The tempura was great!
