We settled with tsubohachi because we didn't want to repeat the same jap restaurants that we always go. I would say this potato cake is something different though the bday girl finds it quite plain. The rest of the food that night was ok maybe because we all order the food that normally all jap restaurants would have. I think the upside of this restaurant would be it opens until quite late so there's a jap food option at night for really late dinner or supper
