Best Japanese and Chinese for in town.

California rolls, sushi, bento boxes, Mu Chu Chicken, this place has it all. Come hungry and you will still take some home.

Large portions! Crab Rangoons lack cream cheese (I think?) Not my favorite. Pop served in cans with cups of ice Many entrees come with (good!) miso soup, small salad (in a sweet vinaigrette), and white rice. We had two of the sushi rolls which we're delish and good in size. We did not have to wait very long for service/food... More

This isn't a great place but when you're in the middle of the great plains and can find a decent Japanese place you'd better take advantage of it.

Horribly slow service, food was mediocre at best! Sticky tables which makes me think everything is unclean! After a hour of waiting they only brought 2 of our three meals ordered and took another 20 minutes to get our third dinner which was cold when it was finally delivered. I would never go back there again !!! Not recommended.... 😖😡

Was pretty hesitant to eat sushi here but it was very good. I would have given 4-5 stars but the service was not very good. The place was pretty much empty and it was still bad. If you have the patience for slow service the sushi is worth it.

Few Asian restaurants are in North Platte, Nebraska. This is a good Japanese Restaurant. It features a decent sushi bar.

For a relatively small town, Tempura offers the most amazing sushi of any place I have visited. They have a great selection for all different tastes. If you happen to be adventurous, the Curry dishes are awesome. For those who tend to be more cautious, the Yaki Udon selections will be what you are looking forward to. The fried rice... More
