Foursquare Tips

  • A tiny LES izakaya with small plates and an extraordinary sake ice cream.
  • The blue fin tuna sashimi tastes like the blood of a thousand virgins. Mmmmm.
  • The Sapporo is always so cold, so amazing
  • Eat everything
  • Summer chawanmushi: ikura, uni and gold leaf - get all of the tuna, lots of sake, uni, porkbelly, ebi, hamachi, grilled sticky rice, everything. You will not be disappointed.
  • Avoid the Tsukune Melt- tastes like Lean Cuisine meatballs.
  • New favorite sake bar. Very authentic Japanese, from the service to the food. Get the oden assortment! Metaiko onigiri is also A+
  • Very Japanese-ish place. If not very familiar with menu, do some research before...
  • Super authentic Japanese food
  • Feld approved.
  • Order from the specials menu.
  • Lovely and serene environment, though bit on pricey side. But I would go back! Try the slimy bomb, rice ball, sashimi, any grilled veggies!
  • Try some izakaya dishes and sake!
  • Daikon Radish Oden, Sea Urchin Sashimi, Ebi Shinzo - fluffy dumpling with cod and shrimp, Washu Gyu Beef, Miso Black Cod, Hotate Butter (Scallop) and Agedashi Mochi - for 2 people. all delicious
  • Tsukune, Washu Gyu Teppanyaki
  • Amazing Japanese restaurant. Japanese barbecue is their speciality. They also have very very good sake. Don't bother about the deserts.
  • Great range of sake and small plates. Best to pick a range of dishes to share, though the simmered clay bowls with a side of rice would make a good meal for one too.
  • I just love everything about this restaurant. All of their food is top-notch, fantastic sake, and great service. It's a small, intimate space that is perfect for date night.
  • Izakaya with high quality food and great sake. Fav sake here: Shiragiku Nigori, "White Chrysanthemum" unfiltered
  • Relaxed atmosphere, great authentic Japanese food, very nice sake cocktail!
