Some people refuse to come here after the restaurant was temporarily shut down for an E.coli outbreak in early 2008, but that hasn't stopped me from coming here for an occasional meal, and it hasn't stopped other people either because the restaurant is always full.
I've been coming here since small kid time, and while it's not as good as it was before, it's still "comfort food" in my book.
Many folks come just for the okazuya items at the entrance to the restaurant. They are perfect to take to athletics events, or if you want to eat a quick meal on the go. We ordered some to munch on in the restaurant while we waited for our food to arrive at our table.
My friend ordered the miso butterfish. Let's just say he didn't finish it, and he didn't ask for a take-out container (which is normally does when he can't finish his food).
