Some of the best Japanese food i have eaten. You must visit the attached bakery and shop that sells Japanese items. The cream cheese bread is out of this world. You can order in advance anything from the bakery and they will package it for you to take out. I visit every time I am in Saipan. Service is good... More

Food was good, especially their sashimi and the varied seafood dishes. But the place was small and crowded - which could be a good sign. I've been there many times and each time i went, they were packed. In the early mornings, you can drop by for some japanese snacks with local flavor, like the Spam Sushi.

We went here with friends. It is a Japanese grocery store with a restaurant and sushi bar added on. It is located off the main drag so is frequented by locals. The service was fast, the food was very good and fresh, and the prices were very reasonable for Saipan.

Located on a side street in Garapan, the Himawari store and restaurant are a delight. The sushi, sashimi, soups, bakery items, etc. are first rate and you may never enjoy such reasonable prices anywhere else. Fine of take-out and eat in at this friendly local spot.

The cream puffs and bread are so yummy. I could have filled up on those. We went at lunch, the service was quick, food was well priced and good.

The first time I went here I was in Japanese heaven. Delicious food at super reasonable prices. Their bentos are top notch with quality ingredients, portion size and very cheap. A wide variety of Japanese baked goods, sushi, bentos, hot soups, drinks and candy. I loved this place so much I even picked up a gigantic bento for the trip... More

i really hate their service. Honestly, they are very slow and not even friendly to the customers. However, the food is great, just the food NOT the Service..
