Best weeknight to eat at Japango?

A couple of friends whom I haven't seen in a while want us to go for dinner at Japango sometime next week. Every night except Thursday seems to be good for us, but what night in particular would be good in regard to busy-ness, service, etc.?
My partner and I love Japango and typically go on Wednesday night. But no matter what night we go, we always call ahead for a table since it's so small and you just never know if it'll be full or not.
from my experience, it generally gets busy by about 7:30pm every night and people are walking away sans table. some nights they get a quicker turnover than others like last night. but very few people make reservations, so you'll be able to nab one at like 5:30pm for a 7pm dinner if you wanted.
service wise, it's never any better or worse i find any day or with anyone in particular. they're all helpful and maybe only once i've had them be a bit neglectful about filling up my green tea. they do often get slammed with sushi orders and so it takes a bit of time to get them out. the chef always apologizes profusely.
to be honest, i'd pick a day by calling in and finding out what fish is in fresh that day. last night i had an AMAZING kampachi and got to taste a fish that's cousin to blowfish (kawa hagi?) and a lot like the fresh subtle flavours of aji (which they had from japan and greece).
