Cold dishes of rice turned up after a long wait and came back again only slightly warmer when we mentioned this to the waitress (clearly zapped in the microwave). Chicken teryaki was dry and rubbery. Not a great experience.

Friendly Japanese restaurant in Little Tokyo. Wide selection of food, everything we ordered was delicious. Savings are typically large, good value. Staff very friendly, good family/casual atmosphere.

The main reason we decided to come here was because of where it was located in Little Tokyo with an outdoor seating area. We were served by a waiter who seemed extremely miserable and didn't make us feel welcome in the slightest. We ordered a...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
