The food is pretty standard Asian cuisine, from onigiri, udon, or rice bowls. I always enjoy the kimchi with pork rice bowl that runs roughly $9. I’d recommend grabbing a drink next door from the grocery as the selection in the restaurant is minimal. Only...down side is it ends up overpacked and can be difficult to get a table during busy times.More

Nothing special. Factory food taste. They have mostly Asian customers, due to fast service and style of food.

I love stopping in here. While the market doesn’t have the best assortment of oriental products it’s pretty good! Yup I’m old, male and white. People look at me oddly as I ask for suggestions and definitions of the veggies and seafood. But I love...talking to the few that are open and friendly! Good food! Fun people! Go and enjoy!More

Since I wanted to try more than one food, I ordered two separate mini rice bowls. One was beef and onion, the other was spicy shrimp tempura for less than $5 each. That was plenty and I took a half of the rice home. This...is a casual restaurant, order and pay in advance. The staff was very friendly and you can sample variety of Japanese foods. If you want to try sushi, visit sushi ten at the next door.More

Love this food tons of different ways to combine the same ramen noodle dish or any dish for that matter- start with a noodle and a broth type add toppings (additional cost each) don’t go crazy - don’t get freaked out by a half hard...boiled egg in your ramen it actually very good. Several other Japanese food shops within few steps including a sushi restaurant and bubble tea shop.More

I felt like we were in the nice college cafeteria. They have noodles, rice bowls as well as appetizers. There is no sushi served. If you want to have sushi, go to the sushi ten which is located just next to this diner. Caprice range...is $10 to $15 per person and their potion is very generous.More

I can't say enough good about this restaurant. It's absolutely delicious. It's affordable. It's comfy. I highly recommend the kitsune udon and the taiyaki. Pop into the grocery for a fluffy cheesecake for dessert. Or into the bakery for a strawberry pastry, or a UFO...bun. I can't wait to go back!More

We had a very nice meal of Ramen at Tensuke Express. Each of us tried a different Ramen bowl. My only criticism was my pork was a little fatty. But I did enjoy the experience.
