Foursquare Tips

  • The braised Porkbelly Kakuni is heaven on a plate!
  • With its small plates and fresh fish, this serene Japanese restaurant, just 40 seats on two floors, attracts Japanese speakers in droves.
  • Mero grilled with miso - Great flavor, creamy and smoky. Will be dreaming about this dish for a very long time.
  • A new favorite restaurant of mine!
  • Extremely overpriced
  • Assorted Roast Mushrooms - So good....
  • Kushikatsu - Deep Fried Pork Belly on a Stick. Nuff Said
  • The beets were amazing.
  • Eat it all. Cold soba + whole squid for sure. Great Japanese whiskey selection for dessert.
  • Get the Kalbi. The Mero was pretty tasty too. Sashimi was fresh but small portions - but still a good deal.
  • 100% Authentic!
  • As others have stated, get the Mero. It is ridiculously delicious. Of course, everything is great. You can't go wrong.
  • Get a bunch of dishes for the table to share: mero miso, baby octopus, watercress salad, fried oysters, rice balls, and of course sake!
  • Order the Pig's Foot; super rich, amazing flavor and texture, absolutely delicious!
  • Holy cow, the rice balls are awesome.
  • Mero. Get the Mero. You can thank me later.
  • Their Mero dish ruined me for all other fish. It might have changed my life. Get it.
  • Ankimo - Monkfish liver with a great yuzu vinaigrette. Such a nicely balanced dish.
  • Everything is good. Everything.
  • Under the direction of chef and co-owner Hiroshi Seki, the restaurant features adventurous dishes like beef tongue, classics like kara-age and a number of accompaniments to its fine sake selection.
