This place makes some authentic Japanese food, and it's amazing. Recently coming back from Japan on vacation I've found it really hard to find good places, and now we've finally found one!

I ate dinner at the sushi bar, which interestingly isn't a classic sushi bar where you can order from the chefs. A very attentive. experienced waitress took my order. She made many suggestions and I felt a little pressure to make a decision quickly. The restaurant is loud even though it was relatively early in the evening. The regular bar... More

We were visiting friends in Orinda during a holiday in San Francisco. They took us to Walnut Creek and this gem of a restaurant. We weren't sure of what to expect, but as soon as we walked in the door, we knew we were in for a great experience. It's in a very old building that felt like an old... More

Went for an early Saturday dinner (5:30). Reservation was easy. We chose to sit in the outdoor patio area which had shade and a quiet relaxing ambience. The service was very good & orders were delivered pretty quickly. Their sushi rolls were very large and excellent! Their plates (we had both of the salmons) were very tasty, but on the... More

The decor inside and out is worth checking out on its own. The service Jasmine provided was attentive and fun. We had the Omakase 50 for two and it was perfect! The dishes were beautifully presented and tasted amazing. This is on our "must" come back list. We sat on the patio which has been carefully decorated to create a... More

Met friends for dinner at their recommendation. A great recommendation it was. Great small plates and unusual saki. Perfect for sharing, conversing, and enjoying the blessings of good friendship.

Sasa was excellent from entering to exiting. The service was friendly and prompt. They knew everything about the menu and made sure you knew exactly what you were ordering.The flat iron steak was the highlight. It was presented with a lava rock heated up to 500 degrees in order to cook it to you liking. The sushi was very good.

Loved the eggplant dish and the sushi I ordered. Husband had the duck buns and we shared some garlic rice, very tasty. Adult son and son-in-law got an array of sashimi, skewers, and other small plate dishes -- all very, very good. Late Friday night arrival -- place was pretty full but we still got seated promptly. Definitely will be... More
