This bar reminded me of being back in New York, and not in a good way. For Japan, where nearly every restaurant is amazing or at least good, the food here is refreshingly mediocre, the exception that proves the rule. The dips were ok. The pizza was a mess. The Appletinis were ok but one of my orders simply never arrived after 20 minutes and I had to reorder it. Oddly lax service for Japan. Expensive, too. If you really love hookah, there are better places. If you really love cocktails, there are better places. Basically there are better places.

Very stylish cafe dining where you can enjoy hookah. They have good foods and drinks. Although price is relatively high, recommended for date night or party.
