  • The eel combo is nice! Quiet atmosphere, not crowded. I like the takoyaki very much. A lot of options regarding small appetizers. Decent Japanese restaurant. Neighbor hidden gem.
  • Miso Yasai Ramen: They are very generous with the toppings and add sesame seeds, which lend a nice nutty flavor to the mix.
  • Delicious mixture of starters, especially the tempura, aubergine, and spinach
  • Authentic Japanese mom & pop restaurant. The chefs choice 18 pcs sashimi set is fresh delicious, comes w/ delicately flavored white miso soup. The steamed rice w/ 4 kinds of mushrooms setmeal also
  • Order their Japanese small dish items
  • Grilled chicken skin skewer
  • Katsu don!
  • The Japanese curry is a must. A thick cutlet of breaded and fried pork sits in the center of the dish, submerged halfway in a smooth brown curry studded with minced beef and onions.
  • Get authentic japanese entre dish such as udon and donkatsu; they're GREAT. But, I'd say you can find better sushi/rolls elsewhere.
  • They've been here before this new wave of ramen fever. The food Authentic and the price is great.
  • Curry and ramen was blah. Was super excited to try since it is owned by Japanese... The apps were good though! The grilled tako and tofu :)
  • The salmon sushi literally melts in your mouth
  • Negihama roll
  • Tonkotsu ramen and takoyaki
  • Food is good but service is horribly slow and bad.
  • Don't pass up shabu shabu!
  • The sushi was fantastic! I had a shrimp tempura roll topped with mango, and it was great.
  • Cold Ramen in the summer!
  • try the Miso Yasai Ramen!
  • This is its nabeyaki udon cocoro ramen [$16]. It was quite temperature hot. Besides, it was quite *good*. I should have sent Keizo here.
