Arrived here in the middle of a storm and really appreciated the efficiency of the waitstaff who brought bowls of warm miso soup before we had even looked at menus. Quite a selection of sushi here, a lot of it deep fried, which we avoided...More

We had a delightful and delicious lunch of Bento Boxes for a very reasonable price while in Japan Town. The wait staff were very efficient and accommodated that we three only wanted two lunches. It was plenty to share and the variety was nice.

Ordered bento specials of teriyaki chicken and salmon. Prices were better than others in Japan center and take out easily available. Service was excellent and friendly

The staff were friendly enough, but it felt a little rushed (or perhaps efficient?). There was a huge selection of food to chose from, and the food did not disappoint. It tasted fresh and had a lot of flavor in both of our meals. The...More
