Red wines are challenging for Asian food. You could try a nice zinfandel or potentially syrah/shiraz with lots of berry and pepper flavors which would especially go well with the flank steak and roasted vegetables. More often people go with white wine for Asian food, like a dry Riesling, a Gewurztraminer (these tend to be on the very fruity off-dry side, so only choose it if you like a wine that's a bit sweet) or Viognier.
Also, I'd definitely recommend the okonomiyaki as an appetizer. They're delicious!

Mm, sounds good! I agree with the wine recommendations, though if you wanted to try making an easy cocktail to start off the night that fits the bill, a lycheetini is very easy to make. 1oz plum wine, 1.5 oz sake, splash of lychee syrup (from canned lychee). Shake and serve up in a cocktail/martini glass. Garnish with lychee.
