This place is always packed, so last night I decided to go around 6 PM, before there were too many people there. It's mostly communal tables, except for maybe 3 or 4 individual tables. The food is delicious. I had the baby squid (which came sizzling on a metal plate and were very tender), seaweed salad, teba, eggplant and chicken on skewers, okra on skewers, and cold noodles. Prices were very reasonable. I ordered 9 different plates in all and the bill still came to under $30 (that didn't include beverages though, but there is sake on the menu). The menus are creative - printed on paper and then glued onto what looks like what used to be sake boxes. I'm glad I came early because by the time I left around 7:15, people were already waiting for tables. I'll definitely go again to try out some of the other things on the menu because everything sounded so delicious!
