I've been here twice and both times was drawn in by the lunch set promo of Harami Steak set for $9++, which seems quite a bargain.
The set includes a starter salad and tofu. Then the main has the steak, oxtail soup and mugimeshi rice (a barley/rice combo which seems a healthy option). The oxtail soup is surprisingly clear, well for me anyway I was expecting something more like a beef stock colour. However the taste is good and easy to drink. I wonder if the colour somehow affects the taste to make it more neutral, some psycho-effect perhaps. The steak is quite good and goes well with the mugimeshi rice.
Overall it's definitely good value for this set at 50% discount. I like the atmosphere sitting at the counter and watching the chefs go about their business. I guess this menu might be an acquired taste that doesn't suit everyone, but it's probably worth a try at least once for the experience.
