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.

Heisei's lunch special is very awesome. You can have a country pork steak with Japanese curry for under 10 bucks. Their Tuesday's sushi special is always good. They even offer Takoyaki these days(not on their menu). They lose one star just because of their weird opening hours. They close on Sats noon and all day Sunday.

Arriving to the area at the time of the local Japanese-American automobile plant across the Wabash River, this restaurant is a place to meet old friends and make new ones. There are private dining areas, as well a common dining area. Presentation is pleasant and many it's a nice place to go for more formally nice dining in a shopping... More

This was my third time at Heisei. The place is attractive and the service attentive. The food is plentiful in portions larger than many Japanese restaurants. The fish is good and the bento very generous in size. Service is swift be courteous. Highly recommended for that part of town. The other good sushi place is Maru near Purdue. Both are... More
