Japanese Family Restaurant

The atmosphere is friendly as if completely at ease in serving families, but upscale for business and special date dining experience.

I will admit, I ate food there that I've never eaten before & I loved it! Gotta admit, a couple of things I ordered, I wasn't sure if they were dead or not, but you know what, it was always delicious. Plenty of parking. Fantastic hors de oevres. Just off the bypass so easy to find. Yes, I will go... More

Heisei is an authentic Japanese sushi bar with very friendly waiters and sushi chefs. The maki are creative and tasty; the nigiri and sashimi always taste fresh and full of flavor. The other dishes, tempura, meats, and soups are also excellent. Great for a quick lunch or nice dinner.

We always have a great time when we go there. We usually sit at the bar and chat with the Sushi chef, who has been there for almost two decades. It's always busy, expect a 20 minute wait on almost any evening. The food is more traditional Japanese (not the more popular tempura battered everything rolls that seem to be... More

This past Saturday was a bit of a disaster at Heisei. The salad dressing was full of water so there is a half inch of liquid that the lettuce was sitting in. There was no flavor whatsoever because the dressing was simply watered down. The kitchen food came out but for those at our table ordering sushi, their food didn't... More

This place is amazing. The sushi is always fresh and delicious and Jose is always making new rolls for people to try at the sushi bar. Their traditional Japanese menu is very diverse and all delicious as well.

Heisei is one of those places you might miss because of its location - a nondescript strip mall a bit outside the main part of town - but it's definitely a local favorite (one of two good sushi places, the other being Maru). The interior is very pleasant, with a mix of seating options, including your basic table, the sushi... More

While I do enjoy Sushi, I am by no means a connoisseur. That being said, I can definitely tell the difference between low-end pre-cooked mass market sushi, semi-fresh Target-like sushi, and well prepared restaurant level sushi. Heisei definitely falls in the last category and puts up a strong show in both value, taste, and presentation. I especially enjoy the floor... More

Went there for dinner, not a fan of waiting but after eating here its definitely worth the wait. Service and food were both awesome. The staff was super friendly and fun to chat with; we sat at the sushi bar. Looking forward to a return visit.

Heisei is an excellent Japanese restaurant. Actually West Lafayette is lucky that it has two. The other one is Sushi Maru in downtown. Heisei offers excellent service and food. Prices are modest and the atmosphere calming and comfortable. It is a pretty complete package for Japanese dining. I highly recommend it.
