“Most Authentic Japanese Restaurant in DFW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2008

If you have a sense of adventure and/or really like authentic Japanese food (no sushi), this is the best in the area. Feels like a typical Tokyo neighborhood family-run shop. All items are excellent (standards llike curry, yakisoba, tonkatsu, oyakodon), but be sure to ask mama-san to describe the daily specials (unless you read Japanese). They have an English menu, but it won't list the specials. Most customers seem to be Japanese, but we're not and we always feel welcomed.

“Delicious and authentic...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2007

Delicious and authentic japanese food, from ramen to grilled fish to donburi, with specials like Oden in the winter. Seeing Hare-san make dashimaki is a real treat for the eyes as well as the tongue. It also helps to be able to speak a little Japanese.
