“Great small Japanese cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

The Don is a great little Japanese cafe with reasonably prices meals, good music and great vibes. If you are looking for an up market dining experience; look elsewhere. If you want a good meal in basic, but pleasant, surroundings, this is the place. The clientele is generally Japanese students, the food is tasty and the staff friendly; what more can you ask for? Try a selection of small dishes for variety. The pan fried gyoza are moist and tasty. The mixed veggies with chile and garlic and the tofu steaks are both delicious.
