Authentic Vegetarian Japanese at cheap to mid range...

the vegetarian fare at fairly reasonable prices... the freshly baked tea cake is to die for... the meal is wholesome and healthy for people who find travelling difficult on their digestive system ... try it with great choices and respect the recommendations of the staff..

Nice food. I had their special and it was balanced and tasty. The aesthetics of the place were nice and the staff was sweet. Overall a nice place. Missing some of the intricacies and perfection of a real Japanese restaurant done correctly.

Lovely food and warm service.. They have an open air seating as well, you might want to check that out. The view along with awesome food is lovely, and its vegetarian. ;)

One of the best places to eat . Specially because of the owner Sonam it makes it worth a visit . Tip - visit on Tuesday or Friday to have their special sushi. I am a hardcore non vegetarian and totally enjoyed this vegetarian meal !!

The food isn't bad however just one visit was enough for us. We had their sushi special and we actually didn't finish it. I am not sure if this is an actual Japanese cuisine restaurant or just Japanese owned.

I went twice in McLeod and every time I went to Lung Ta for the sushi menu day burning also tried the tempura and many things on the menu as I stayed for 1 month each time. The owner is very kind and the snow ball cookies are a.must eat!

they does not cook japanese food unfortunately. I went here 3 times lol though,it did not taste good at all. but sushi is a kinda good. 日本食を食べたかったので評価は悪いとしましたが三回行きました。 それぞれ定食を食べましたが、豆腐ステーキ、天ぷら定食、寿司です。 まず共通して言える事はみそ汁がまずい。。。 味が薄いとか好みが違うというレベルではく、まずい。 みそ汁を作っている容器、鍋は正常に機能しているのでしょうか。なにかしらを焦がした後の鍋を使っている気がします。 そしてご飯もおいしくない。ベトベトで橋でちぎりながら食べていました。 こりもせず三度目の寿司を食べに行きましたが、寿司はおいしかったです。もちろん巻寿司ですが、最後に食べれて良かったです。 寿司が良かったので○二つにしました。つまり寿司を食べていなければ・・・ 誰が調理しているのかは知りませんが、一度見直した方がいいのではないでしょうか。 僕は食べていませんが、聞いた話ではお好み焼きやカレーはおいしいらしいです。 カレーは他のお客さんが食べているのを見ましたがボリュームもあって確かにおいしそうでした。

So family run restaurant is a long-time local establishment. My favorite is the tue and Friday veg sushi set menu and the Japanese barley tea. They have great outdoor seating overlooking the mountains. If they have the chocolate mouse, be sure to get it. It's different but amazing.

This place has the appreance of a small nondescript hole in the wall. But looks can be deceiving. If your focus is on stylish ambience this is not for you. This place offers unbelievably divine food. The ingredients are very fresh. The desert cakes are very light and with real milk cream. I highly recommend the roasted tea as well.... More

We'd show up on Fridays when they served an amazing tempura noodle soup. Total veg restaurant, if I'm remembering correctly. The atmosphere is very sweet, with a wonderful shop fill of handmade items.
