At their "tiny", "haute Japanese" in a San Mateo strip mall, "husband-and-wife duo" Katsuhiro and Mayumi Yamasaki present seasonally changing "kaiseki-style" dinners ("nine delicious courses" of "wow") while making guests "feel like the only ones dining"; it's "hard to get into" (and quite "expensive"), but for such a "memorable experience", it's worth "calling one month in advance", as "reservations are a must"; P.S. open Tuesday–Sunday.
