I gave this place multiple shots. The food is nice and light and have never had a bad plate from them. The biggest qualm I have with this place is the service. Formerly known as UCC Cafe, which is a famous Japanese coffee company, this place does not offer many options for coffee. I asked to substitute the traditional simple syrup they use in their iced coffee for the more exotic macadamia syrup and I was of course willing to pay the extra fifty cents; however, the workers went to the extreme to try and add a small amount to my coffee beforehand or give me only a small amount. Working in customer service myself, I always feel like an inconvenience at this place.

Overall, great food for a cheap price; however, will not make this a regular haunt due to the fact I don't like feeling like I am doing the servers an inconvenience by giving them my money.

Iced Coffee. I requested for an additional charge Macadamia Nut Syrup.
Hamburger Steak...Very very good.
Unagi Salad...VERY generous piece of unagi!
BLT which was such a large portion that I had it for dinner as well.
Teriyaki Chicken Salad...very refreshing.
Chicken Cream and Bacon Mushroom Pasta...delicious!
