Tips

  • The blue fin tuna sashimi tastes like the blood of a thousand virgins. Mmmmm.
  • The Sapporo is always so cold, so amazing
  • A tiny LES izakaya with small plates and an extraordinary sake ice cream.
  • 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!
  • So authentic and delicious! Get a cozy comfy bar seat if you can. Udon, chawanmushi, and pork belly skewer were incredible. Great salty bar bites menu too.
  • Matsu sashimi was great. Eel with egg and veggies is amazing! We didnt know what sake we had to order and their reco was the perfect pairing for all the food. Smoked spicy cod roe is a must
  • Fantastic dinner. Ume chef's choice sashimi, 4 different fish, 4 pieces each + miso glaze rice cake, fried fish cake, tofu and egg, perfect amount for two.
  • 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.
