I have been on so many Japanese places in my life and I have to say that this is not what I have expected from this place. There are so many great meals in here and far more original from the others.

I can feel the comfort in here, the mystic culture of the Japanese and their cooking is a mystic experience and you can feel it all in here. What a good place.

The ramen that they have in here are really tasty and hearty. There are a lot of things in there too, so every penny spent is worth every slurp and gulp.

First I would like to ask where can you eat decent sushi for less than $40 or $50 a person. This is what a person would spend at Tsunami or the like of Tsunami spots in the city. Expensive if your hang out are WEBE sushi for example.\r

Sushi is not so good and not worth the money. Service is poor on average and the best you can expect is one glass of water. Staff is likely to encourage you to pay the bill and leave quickly so they can refill your table.\r

If you go you must order the sashimi platter. The fish is really fresh served on a platter that looks like an underwater jungle, except the fish can't swim.
