Enjoyable Japanese Cuisine

2 of us had sushi/maki and 1 had a noodle dish- all were great tasting and filling. It's a comfortable place with an abundant menu. Prices are on par with other Japanese restaurants. Will be back.

Nice menu with the usual appetizers but some innovative main courses. Walnut shrimp in a sweet sauce is excellent. Very economical restaurant. On the small side with low tables (reminds me of Japan) and very casual ambiance. Service is adequate. Street parking.

I've been here a number of times, primarily with sibs-in-law when they are in from back east, and with our grown-up kids. Several are vegan or vegetarian, so finding restaurants to please all is tricky business. Everyone likes it, except me. I just can't find anything appealing on the menu. Mind you, I love Asian food, but to my pallet... More

This pan-Asian restaurant in Evanston is a little gem. The food is fresh and well prepared, the portions are generous and the prices are quite reasonable. I enjoyed a ginger chicken with brown rice, and asked for it to be spicy. It was delicious and wonderfully hot. My dinner mate had a salmon dish that came complete with miso soup.... More

Wow! This place is phenomenal! This was THE BEST Asian food I've had in I can't remember when. We had the tempura dinner and I don't think I've ever had better tempura- very light, crispy, flavorful with wonderful sauce. But THE ABSOLUTE BEST was the "Crispy and Soft Noodle" entree- doesn't sound like much from the name but it was... More

They had a roach on the wall right where we were sitting. When we pointed that thing out, the girl came with a chair and a towel in her hand. She was trying to catch the roach right in front of us (they did not offer to move us, neither have they appologized). Horrible, will never come back there again.

This is one of my neighborhood stand-byes. The menu is extensive, with Thai, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese dishes. The sushi is fresh, eye-appealing, and good. Lots of good to very good interpretations of noodle dishes. The last time I ate there I had the tempura soba--a big, seemingly bottomless bowl of soba noodles in a yummy broth with average, but...
