“Our Daughter's Favorite Japanese Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

First, it's important to note that this restaurant isn't actually in Centreville. It's in Fairfax (the entire Fair Lakes Shopping Center is). That being said, it is pretty close to Centreville so is easily accessible from there.

The food here is very good and very consistent. It isn't necessarily the best of everything, but it is perfectly passable in pretty much every regard. The best deal is their lunch buffet as, otherwise, their prices can be a bit high (this is fairly consistent across all Japanese restaurants in the area though). They refresh most of the items on the buffet fairly frequently, so they are nice and fresh (especially the sushi, but also the tempura).

When we aren't having the buffet, our daughter (age 9) also really likes their tempura udon. My husband tends to get the beef curry, which is just like that we had in the curry and coffee houses in Japan.

The staff is always very friendly and helpful, even recommending when they don't think an item is good that day. This isn't the only Japanese restaurant where we eat in the area, but is probably the one were we go the most. And it's good every time.

“Lunch Buffet is Awesome Deal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

The lunch buffet is a steal. The fish is fresh and there are lots of other offerings if you don't eat sushi.

“Love this little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2010

This place is great to stop by especially when im shopping at target, which is right next door. The miso soup is amazing and Their seaweed salad is my favorite. I love all the sushi. I even eat the eel. I have been to alot of sushi places in the area and think that this one is a pretty great one. Not the best but I always enjoy how nice the staff is and how everyone greets you when you walk in the door. It always makes me smile :)
