Appreciated that the owners separated this quiet sushi venue from the busy noisy and good noodle venue next door as the sushi chef can concentrate on the zen of quality. Enjoyed the raw fish and the huge California roll. High quality.

We ate here while visiting Columbus. The Japanese curry is a family favorite. The portions are huge. The restaurant is always crowded. There are all kinds of Japanese products here.

My husband brought me here for dinner last night, and I was very impressed. I had udon noodles and spicy shrimp tempura. It was absolutely amazing, but seating is quite limited. The food is very authentic, and there's a grocery store attached that is incredibly fun.

Tensuke is a Japanese grocery store and they have a little restaurant attached to it. In this restaurant you can eat authentic Japanese curry, ramen, sushi and many other dishes. They are reasonably priced and really good.
