Nice Japanese food, great service and very friendly atmosphere. Went there without expectations and had a great night. Had the salmon teriyaki and yakiniku. Both were very good. Everything was value for many from portion size to quality. Worth a visit for a casual night...More

Better than average, not my first pick but in Goleta this would be my choice for Japanese. I did prefer the small little restaurant it was before, and thought the food was better there. Nonetheless, the lunch bentos are a good deal, and large portions...More

We came and were very pleased with the food. Which is what you come here for I guess... but never got a refill of water and waited way too long for the bill. Long enough to complete this review and its not even terribly crowded...More
