All a dishes offer in this grill are carrying reasonable price, about RM10-20, that means we can suffer a Japanese food by a Japanese cook with a travel food price! No kidding!

The grill was handling by 90% of a Japanese, and a kitchen too. This is another new to Johor Bahru, since many of a Japanese restaurants within JB usually a cook or a owners are ‘Nihonjin’…other are internal or unfamiliar workers…I was impressed. We visited on a initial day operation of a restaurant, and it was full of Japanese. Great!
