I like this place because it's clean, fast and good. Don't expect to get Asian Fusion flavors or appearance. Let's be real... The meals are 3.99-9.99 and express in the name. My kids like it as much as Pei Wei.

I routinely drive past multiple chain Japanese places on my way to nakato. No matter where you live in the rdu area it's worth the trip. Been a loyal customer for 10 years now and never had a bad experience. I recommend it to anyone I talk to.

This place has a nice atmosphere, good food, large portions, and is also nicely priced. It is in a strip mall, so we didn't know what to expect, but were very pleased.
