Always good is Syringa Bento, Guy don, and Dragon roll.They also have great saki choices. Please give this place a try. It's very limited seating inside , and a... More

First visit to this tiny little restaurant in Coeur d' Alene. It is a Japanese restaurant but didn't realize that when we went. We thought it was a fish house. Kind of is though with lots of sushi on a separate. Some very interesting Asian dishes. The thing I loved though was the tempura shrimp and vegetable dinner. Outstanding. Also... More

We had heard from several people that the food was great and they were so.. right. You probably would never find it since it's several blocks off the main drag. At 5:30 it was pretty full, so get there early. The spicy green beans and tuna on top of avocado was delicious. Ordered rolls with shrimp tempura and tuna and... More

This place is small, parking situation could be bad if busy, the wait could be long if you have a big group, but the food was delicious. The dessert menu was odd because I loved it but my wife did not. So no dessert for us. The teryaki bento beef is huge amount of food and comes with pork. The... More

My wife, who is Vegan, and I were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary on June 19th and we found the Syringa on a Google search for Vegan restaurants. It is a unique and casual venue. Although the restaurant is mostly not Vegan, they had several dishes that were. Our waiter, Scott, was very helpful guiding us through their menu for... More

This is a tiny yet popular place so reservations are recommended. I had a sushi sampler which is created at the chef's discretion and you also have the option of substituting rolls from the menu. Everything was outstanding and the service was great too.

We tried to get reservations but due to the small number of tables were unable to do so. We took a chance and got a table for 4 anyway. We ordered a speciality roll each and a sashimi platter as well as draft Sapporo. All the rolls were excellent as was the interesting variety on the platter which included moonfish... More
