After the lovely warmed Saki and the delicious Japanese meal, we left the restaurant with a smile. The Japanese food was beautifully prepared, and the delightful Japanese decor was perfect. A quiet atmosphere for a busy restaurant. The Saki helped us wait for the slow arrival of the main entree.

And by typical I mean it as a complement. After 35 years Endosan is handing off to Endokun - being the son - but he goes by Chikara- his first name. Used to be 100% traditional but now the son is finally being allowed to do things different. A delightful place I have been going to for almost 20 years... More

Good place for a first-timer to try Japanese tradional foods. Nothing fancy, just plain good food . They'll even give you a fork if you really can't handle chop sticks!!

Chikara, the sushi 'chef' at Sugata, always has something special to recommend; he is especially great with his recommendations, once, he gets to know your tastes for fish. The food at Sugata has a very, very authentic flavor; it very much, reminds me of food, prepared by my relatives; it's almost if they had the same recipes and preparation style.

Having placed our order and waited 40 minutes we asked after our food. After waiting twenty more minutes we complained and we left. With so few tables it's hard to understand how a table for two could be overlooked for so long.

We've gone to Sugata for about 20 years now. As others have mentioned, the sushi is excellent, but our family's favorites are the tempura udon and teriyaki beef/chicken donburi. I haven't read the other reviews, but Sugata is small (about 10 tables in 200 square feet of room plus a 6-person sushi bar) and not fancy (the specials are written... More
