Great place for bento lunch

This is a very good local find, the food is delicious, inexpensive, and the ambiance is kinda down home Japanese.

I have no idea what took me so long to try this place but I finally did! I've been on a mission to find the best nabeyaki udon on the rock recently, and I was happy to learn they offer one.

Out here for business and wanted to try a local Japanese restaurant near by. This place is located in a strip mall with ample parking. Ordered their Ichiban D combo which included: Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura, steak teriyaki, and chicken teriyaki. The batter to the tempura was thick and under cooked. The dipping sauce was cold and the steak teriyaki... More

Friendly staff, good menu and great value food. Try the teriyaki chicken it's very tasty and it comes with miso soup. It was always busy with diners when I went there ... Twice during my trip as I liked it so much I went back again

A daring claim, but one of my absolute favorite sushi places in the US. When I would visit my grandparents, they would always bring us here, so there's some sentimental value to the place. I've been coming to this place for the last 15 years or so. As one restaurant in the mall strip, the exterior and interior is simple... More

We ordered a few dishes which were a mix of positive, passable and horrible. The eel-avocado-cucumber roll was good but pretty sloppily made. Not what I expected for that price. We also had the miso butterfish, where the fish was fairly good, and came with some decent rice but also had a side salad and miso soup that were horrendously... More
