More of a dinig hall type facility for the seniors home above, but it offers no frills dining on a budget. The only drawback, the menu is rather limited and no alcohol is served.

Been dining here for years and the food has consistently been good. This is actually a seniors home and I really wouldn't mind retiring here just so I could eat here daily.

If you want to try some Japanese home-style dishes, then you should go to Hi Genki. I have never been there for dinner, but I heard that lunch was better for the value. It is in the Nikkei Senior's home and the residents eat there,...More

There may be no Japanese restaurant like this place anywhere in North America, maybe the world? It's in a seniors home. The elderly people eat over there, and the customers eat over here. There's a Japanese-Canadian museum and cultural centre next door. The key to...More
