This is your run-of-the-mill local Japanese place that serves bento boxes and sushi. Nothing to write home about but does the trick when you're craving something remotely Japanese tasting. I'm personally amazed at how crowded this place gets. I've never walked by without seeing a line. On the day we went, the hostess told us we'd only wait 15 minutes and asked us to wait outside. Almost half an hour had passed, and I went back in to inquire about the wait. She couldn't even find our names on the list because she had already moved on to her next sheet of paper. I watched her pluck out a crumpled piece of paper off her hostess stand to find our names. In summary, if you plan to come - make sure you keep pestering the host/hostess.
