Japan Inn is part of a chain, the decor is Japanese, very nice. The staff is good, the restaurant and menu of the chain are very similar. You sit at a Hibachi, order from menu, and the chef entertains with his cooking skills.

The food was overcooked., especially the beef satay. The soup was bland and the edemame was also bland and unsalted. The tuna roll was fresh The good took a long time to be served. I will not return.
