We were lucky enough to be accompanied by a real Okinawan and she verified the authenticity of the food. Goya, an Okinawan vegetable that looks like a cucumber with cancer, was in most dishes. It's bitterness is not for every taste, but I really like it. Also, as in Okinawa, there were a lot of Pork products (bellies, stomach, they were out of the feet)... and AWAMORI, a kind of Okinawan vodka. Our native said that was overpriced (3 times the price in Okinawa), but this IS New York. The live music was great, very different from other Japanese music. Despite other reviews, we found the service to be very good. Efficient and helpful. The only problem was price. It cost us about $45 each. But... this IS New York. --Eat Club is a roving group of NYC gluttons.

Pros: Authentic Food, great live music

Cons: expensive

Although their service isn't the greatest, I keep going back to this restaurant. Unlike many popular Japanese restaurants use cheap instant Miso soup mix with MSG or Amino Acid, they seem to make their miso soup from scratch or use higher quality instant Miso soup mix. If you would like to enjoy simple familial Japanese/Okinawan food, this is a great place to dine. If you would like popular Japanese food like sushi or sashimi, go somewhere else. I do have to agree with other reviews that the service is not great.

Pros: Good food

Cons: Slow Service

when the restaurant is too busy with a big group of Japanese customers, you wouldn't get any attention and the service becomes untorelably slow. you could be told most of the menu items are no longer available even at 6 PM. if you don't mind slow service and limited selections on the menu occasionally, then you might consider dining there... at least, food is decent. the pricing is not that great though.

Service was slow, haphazard and mistakes were made without any concern for the guests. Our courtesy and patience only seemed to encourage their persistent rudeness and lackadaisical nonservice. There were only 4 other tables so it wasn't as if they were swamped. We still gave a little over the standard 15% tip but be forewarned that 15% is mandatory at this restaurant. We learned this as we were leaving because the waiter misread the credit card receipt and demanded that we make up the difference.

The food was mediocre to average. I felt like I had wandered into the overpriced branch of Go Sushi.
