Small restaurant, quiet atmosphere where you can hear each other converse. Relatively inexpensive menu. Katsu/egg and sashimi combo excellent as was the udon. Friendly service but a bit slow bringing the food.

The title says it all. Surprisingly good Japanese food in mid-town for surprisingly little money.

ISE has a fantastic selection of lots of varieties of Japanese food - sushi, sashimi, Udon, etc. Service is very good and attentive. The restaurant has a small intimate feel to it; just like many small restaurants in Tokyo.
