Great food.....

Was here on new year's eve. Place was crowded and we had a near 30 min wait. Surely a popular place. Started with warm sake, followed by a whole grilled squid. And then tempura with cold noodles. Really enjoyed the food.

Wasn't expecting much for a tasty Asian food in the states (no offense) but this took our tastebuds away that we had it for a second time during our 4 nights stay. Everything is great and I love the udon especially. Our friends asked what was the best meal that we had and tbh, this was it, unbelievable.

Dojima-Ann is one of the most authentic Japanese restaurants I have eaten at since I lived in Japan. The plastic bowls of food in the window lured me into this quaint establishment. There is a clipboard near the entrance for customers to write their names down and then wait to be seated. We arrived around 1:00 p.m. and had to... More

Delicious! I went there 3 times for 2 days! Servers are kind. Pretty popular place. Better to visit before/after lunch time.

Walked past this small restaurant on the way to my hotel. Noticed mostly Japanese standing in line to get in. That said to me "Eat Here", which I did twice! The best sushi I've experienced. Service was good, prices were right. Do try the fried chicken...yes fried chicken - Japanese style.

Niku Udon Set was very good. The temperature was excellent, the beef was tender and savory. I recommend this option. Excellent location. Casual atmosphere, unpretentious and the mirror is a good idea when you seat towards the wall

I had a combination plate -- sushi and tempura. It was well prepared and tasty. The space is small, so you are likely to be in close proximity to your neighbor. The restaurant was also a bit hot when we were there.

This is a small restaurant, very busy, but worth the wait. Most of the clientele looked like locals and not tourists. As we waited we checked out the food coming out of the kitchen. Not only did it smell great, the plating was excellent. Our dinner was served in a reasonable time and the staff was very helpful. Would highly... More

I have been coming to this Japanese restaurant for about 5 years now. It has changed hand a couple of times I think. Food remains very good and dishes have been kept with no change which in my opinion is a good thing as I really like them the way they are.
