I ate lunch with my husband today at this little Japanese no frills restaurant. The Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura ($8.95) was very light and did not taste greasy, but the veggies were julienne cut (like matchsticks) and to me was a strange presentation. The hot tea was Japanese and good. The Miso soup was warm and too salty. The rice and California roll were dry. My husband ordered a Bulgogi Box Lunch $10.95--a Korean influenced meal. He said it was ok, but would not go back for more. (He loves good Korean food).The flavor of the Bulgogi was good that I sampled, but it was cold.The couple that run it were very pleasant and attentive. Two Japanese tourist families came in halfway through our meal. This experience made me think that without a lot of people it must be hard to have fresh, hot and perfect meals in a small mom/pop restaurant. It was clean inside and table cloths were on all the tables.
