It's exactly what you are looking for. I almost walked right by it. But if it weren't for the lanterns with the insignia I would have gone the night hungry. The setting is intimate and delicate, you can see the cools and they can see you. There is minimal wait time for your food. Coming from a Asia trip with Japanese food blowing my mind, it was nice having the familiar flavors and preparation to send me back to Osaka.

Fantastic! The food is great and the staff are super friendly! I'd recommend that you try the takoyaki. Authentic and straight from Tokyo.

First visit to this restaurant, after seeing a play on E6th street. Ordered Ramen noodles w/shrimp. The bill came to $11.11. The meal was packed in a brown paper bag. I saw a plastic mini shopper with the restaurant's logo at the counter, and asked could I have one for my order. The cashier replied that those shoppers were reserved for customers who purchased big orders. I'm thinking how much food can that small shopper hold, and is $11.00 not enough. Also, what about the free advertising they would have received, travelling from the village to the Bronx on public transportation. I was totally turned off from their customer service and vowed never to return.
