This is one of the best meals I had recently. Yeah, price is $$$$, but it is in San Francisco, honestly, price is expensive everywhere. The creative is there, but still showing originality. Service is excellent. Will be back!

We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant really did specialize in teas, and not just ones sourced from Japan (though they are our favorite). The fare is more hardy Japanese dishes with Ramen being a specialty. The gyoza were unique with having thin rice "skins" and not the common dough (like pot stickers). Only tried the vegetarian ones and will have to try the pork next time. The entrees were very good but we have to recommend their desserts. The panacotta was EXCEPTIONAL.
