I have eaten meals at Nagano about 100 or so times (NOT an exaggeration), but only once under its current ownership. There was a time when Otai and his wife Suni ran a high-quality, if fairly costly, restaurant. It went steadily downhill over a period of years, due in no small part to Otai-san's confidence that he could pretty much... More

We went to this restaurant in July. At that time, we ordered Sushi Deluxe and Chirashi. Although Sushi rice had too much vinegar, fish are fresh. Then we went back to the restaurant on 8/12. Everything that they served was pretty bad. We ordered two sushi deluxe. Sushi deluxe looks like Regular Sushi (not Deluxe at all). but the worst... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. The ownership has changed a couple of times through the years, but the food is always good. You must try the AYCE option for only $24.95 per person for dinner. The sushi choices are excellent, and there is also food from the kitchen. There is also free sake. The only problem... More

We have been coming here for years. It has changed hands a few times, but the new owner is always a current employee! The new owner, Benny, has kept the food as delicious as ever, but has slightly updated the décor. We never order from the menu, but always allow the chefs to provide an "omakase" dinner -- their choice... More

The first time I went here, it was with a friend who had an Entertainment book coupon. After ascending the stairs to the second floor where the restaurant is located, we walked into a somewhat busy dining room - a good sign. The service was fairly prompt. The sushi and sashimi was awful. Actually warm, as if it was sitting... More

We have been coming here for years, and find the fare quite consistently good. The warm moist hand cloths are a nice start that many Japanese restaurants seem to be foregoing these days. The service is prompt. The Sushi chef always looks up when someone enters, and we always nod in greeting. The fish is always very fresh, and the... More

The sushi was really fresh. My date and I shared the boat but we wanted to get several pieces that were not included. We agreed to pay extra but they didn't come. When we asked our waitress she said they were not included but the head man (don't know his name) came over and told us he would give them... More

I love Japanese food and there is a difference when it is cooked by Japanese. Everything on the menu is delicious and tastes almost like mom made it. The sushi and chirashi are great. The sashimi is always fresh and the the rice is seasoned with just the right amount of vinigar. The Tempura, Terriyaki, and bento meals are great!... More
