Japan West was a gift to the City of Findlay by a Japanese family that owns a manufacturing facility in the community. Their intent to share their culture hit the mark and has been for over 20 years. Recently remodeled, there are two distinct area: the teppan tables in the middle section and the sushi dining to the front to... More

Had dinner with another couple and really enjoyed Japan West. We started with the pork appetizer and they are a MUST! The California and eel sushi was enjoyed by our friends. We loved the grill man and all the wonderful fresh foods he cooked on it. We had very yummy steak, shrimp and scallops. This is the only place local... More

Japan West offered one of the best sushi and sashimi meals I have had outside Vancouver or Honolulu. The decor is contemporary Japanese - one could almost imagine being in Tokyo. The raw fish is "fresh" - I put that in quotation marks because most fish served in North American Japanese restaurants has been frozen - but the quality is... More

We love the sushi here. The tempura shrimp and vegetables are very good as well. It's a very clean and nice restaurant. A favorite downtown.

Japan West is an incredible AUTHENTIC Japanese restaurant. If you are from Japan and want to visit a piece of home, this is the place to visit. Ito runs a wonderful restaurant. Ask for the Japanese white board.

Came here with two local friends during a visit. We had some great miso and salad and some great sushi for 3. This is as good as anything in DC, so don't let anyone tell you different. We sat at the sushi bar, that way you always get good service. How many people in Findlay are eating sushi? Plenty!

I love Japanese food, so I have to give a very good rating to this restaurant for the food and atmosphere but a very low rating for service. Since this restaurant is very close to my workplace, my colleagues and I would always come here for lunch. The sushi and beef teriyaki are my favorite choices. The only problem with... More

If you are a fan of fine Japanese food, this is the place to go. Well known for its outstanding sushi, you cannot go wrong with any item from the authentic Japanese menu. One potential negative: if they are busy - which can happen on the weekend - be prepared to wait. But it is well worth the wait, as... More

Every city should have a Japanese restaurant this good. At many Japanese restaurants the menu stops at sushi and bento boxes. Japan West has a broad menu of sushi, noodles, soups, grilled items and more, for workers at the many Japanese manufacturing companies nearby. Really good fresh sushi, but very traditional. Tempura and soba noodles were excellent. Service was pretty... More
