Yeah I saw those reveiws as well.

Some mentioned that the service was not so great. I think I can understand why they would say that. All the servers are real Japanese with English as a second language. Since we are Japanese we can chat with the server and the server was very comfortable with us, gave us a detailed explaination of each dish, why and what ingredients were used, method of cooking etc.

I also overheard them TRYING to explain a dish in English and it just didn't go over right. A true case of 'lost in translation'. Not excusing them but a possible reason why some consider the service not so good.
