This place is great if you want a private dining experience and you have a good amount of money to spend. Each party has it’s own room. It’s a shabu shabu place and everything is a set menu. My parents and I had no idea, so we ordered things a la carte to cook at our table/private dining room which was still probably no bigger than my StuyTown bathroom. We ordered some things to grill which were amazing and fresh, so I trust everything here would be just as great. Next time I know. We probably spent more money ordering individual dishes than it would have been had we gone with a set.

Note to self: next time come back for their shabu shabu! And their seafood platter to grill.

This place has great sushi for the cost. It was inexpensive, especially if you compare it to New York prices, and they give you a lot of food. The oysters here are especially delicious. It’s no wonder they have a number of restaurants throughout Tokyo. Give it a try the next time you are in Japan.
