We were the first people in the door at 5:30 pm and that's a good thing. Since we didn't have a reservation we might have been turned away. The sushi was terrific. We especially liked an eggplant and green peppers dish.

We went here after one of our friend from CHEFSTEPS told us about. We were debating between Shiro or this place and in the end we decided for the recommendation. My husband is a big salmon eater and he said that thanks to this place he was able to taste the real rich buttery taste of salmon that people always... More

Went with a group of friends. This place was small and crowded, but still intimate. We got a variety of appetizers and everything was delicious! This place was a great find!

Outstanding, authentic Japanese restaurant. Was taken here by a friend that is a connoisseur of fine Asian food and it did not disappoint. We left it to the chef to prepare a selection of specials. All the seafood was fresh and expertly prepared. With limited seating and increasing popularity, it would be wise to make reservations.

I was told by a friend that this place is a lot like most places in Tokyo- no sign, tucked away on a hill in the International district. Somewhere you sort of stumble upon since there are so many clandestine restaurants in Tokyo because it is so enormous. I had the Tokyo ramen bowl special and it was so tasty... More

It's worth the wait! There was a queue for the restaurant an hour before they were even open. On Friday's there's the old school Tokyo Ramen special. Absolutely delicious!

Not many businesses exist without a sign out front. This is such a place. This small Japanese restaurant is a busy little place. The food is good and worth a visit. Or come for ramen on Friday at lunch. Plan on a wait.

Long line on sidewalk which was a good sign. Once they opened the door the turned away people without reservations because they had a large... More

This small, family-run Japanese restaurant in the International District is a short walk from the light rail station and the train station nearby. We arrived in Seattle earlier in the day and managed to get a 9pm reservation at the sushi bar which was great for a Saturday night. We ordered the $45 omakase menu (nigiri) which includes roughly 10-12... More
