Chic and modern. And authentically Japanese. But, if you have a Japanese mother, you'll find the food is just so-so. Here's the family review:
Salmon sashimi - Sliced too thick (said my father)
You can get it cut like that at Costco (said my mother)
Sanma -It's okay. But it's nothing special (said my father)
Eggplant: Good (said my mother)
Mackerel: good, but nothing special (me)
Green tea noodles: Good on a hot day. Simple though. I bet I could make it, and my mom could make the broth just as good.
We got other bites there which are now lost on me. But I do remember that they weren't at all bad. Just not anything special. Ditto for the service.
