Freshness Inspires !
Teppan Yaki, known for its entertainment by the chef who cooks in front of you, can also be culinarily inspirational. You will realize and appreciate how tasty the Teppan food can be when you are served with freshly cooked food with the temparature and texture in the right moment. This is when the Japanese value of "this moment" becomes eternal.
Open Kitchens !
Our sushi bars and dining kitchens, not to mention the teppan tables, are open to be seen. Our customers enjoy the scenery of our kitchen chefs who are working and preparing their food. When you can see the cooking process, it is not only more transparent but also you experience a part of tradition and cultural mastery of our chefs. While you are in our restaurants, you will appreciate the wholeness of entire process from the food preparation to its tasting.
Together with Community
We understand that every community has its own unique identity. While we keep our same fundamental value, we also listen. We listen to a family, a couple, and a group of people, making sure that they leave our restaurant happily. It is when customers come back to our restaurant in various stages of their life that we feel our mission realized and humbly sense being a part of the community.
