One of my favorite places to eat lunch. Unfortunately, I've stopped eating meat (I miss yakasoba yakatori), but the fish is always on point, full of flavor and never dry. I'm not sure about the other dishes (each come with their own sides) but the fish come with miso soup, rice, spinach and wasabi, and a sweet seaweed. Complimentary green... More

This is Japanese food like an office worker in Tokyo would eat: good, simple and very affordable. Nothing fancy. You order and pick up your (free!) tea at the counter, and most people bus their own plates. Everything we tried was tasty and portions were generous for a lunch. It is a small walk-up with only seven tables, so it... More

Really good authentic Japanese lunch place. The place is cash-only and pretty small, so make sure to come 10-15min before noon to get a table. But it does worth it, the food is delicious. A nice energizing cup of green tea is included with lunch. The menu is pretty big, and there is a sushi option too.

I love going to this restaurant as I love sushi. Always friendly and fantastic service. No matter what you order ( I have ordered many different dishes) it is all very tasty and served in a timely and friendly manner. Almost feels like you're at home the atmosphere is so casual and cozy. The only thing I am disappointed with... More

I had never been there before, but heard rave reviews so decided to stop one afternoon. There's no real order here and it's just grab a menu and order. The menu is extremely limited and consists mostly of fried foods. I told the owner to give me her best dish and she chose a mackerel. It came out and really... More

You know the place is open when the "sandwich board" is on the sidewalk out front, complete with a couple of helium balloons. The place is only open for lunch, only four days per week, and not when Masako travels to Japan for a month or so, which she does periodically, and on no discernable schedule. If you've never been...

Food was very good, pricing reasonable. There were 3 of us. We ordered 3 different dishes as well as a soup which is a meal by itself. The woman thought we ordered to much, but my family has large appetites and we consumed what we ordered. Things you should know. Blink and you might pass the place,as it is upstairs... More
