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!!

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
