Before heading to the only East Bay location of this small Japanese chain, you need to know what you’re in the mood for. The spacious, contemporary dining room is divided into three sections—a sushi bar, a teppan area where food is cooked at your table, and regular booths—and each has a different menu. We sat in a regular booth and were thrilled with zippy, perfectly grilled chicken yakitori skewers, as well as a large portion of light, delicately fried tempura shrimp and veggies. The adventurous should try the heart attack roll appetizer, with fried jalapeños, cream cheese, and spicy tuna. Meat lovers will dig the tender teppan-style filet mignon. Unfortunately, katsudon, a pork cutlet and rice dish, arrived sans sauce and was disappointingly dry and bland. Lunch and dinner daily.
