Totally worth coming. 12 per plate, perfect Japanese food, crunchy salmon skin! Perfect for one, although the local is pretty small and seems like a place to eat fast, nevertheless there is a nice sitting area outside.

Loved the freshness of the food and the fact that after the meal you don't feel as though you have overdone it. Great selection, really great if you are a vegetarian (or not). We went three nights in a row we loved it so much.

The cafe is centrally located. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as allowing patrons to take their food to the bar beside. Their donburi-style selection of dishes give you plenty of options for a quick, warm meal on a budget.
