Everything was excellent , we sat at the counter and had a great night . Sushi and yakatori to start ,beef fillet teppenyaki and okura fried rice mains ! Didn’t love the yakotori but that was more a personal thing than the execution of the food ! Service was great and it was very lively for a Thursday night . We will definitely be back for more !
