I had an order of oysters on the half shell. The dressing on top was spicy hot and wonderful. I wanted to hug the chef! All the other entrees we had were fresh and flavorful. We are coming back the second week of January mostly to eat here again. Cowlicks next door is a wonderful finish to a wonderful meal!

Very good- try the wild grilled salmon with salad which comes with miso (so so) soup, rice and tea all for under $17. Friendly prompt service. Desert next door at Cowlicks Hand Made Ice Cream. Try the candy cap mushroom ice cream next door- tastes like maple. Sorry to mix reviews but it's a great combo!

Nice to have some choices in a small town. Takas has a great menu and the food is very good. Sushi is excellent and lots of vegetarian options. Plus, Cowlick's ice cream next door for dessert!

Thank jan d

Let's start with saying the staff was very friendly if not a bit unorganized. Dinner for take out was prepared in a reasonable amount of time....... However the food was terrible! I've worked in the kitchens of several very nice Japanese Restaurants here on the San Francisco Peninsula, been to Japan 3 times and Lived there for half a year on the last trip. That said I think I have a good grasp of what quality Japanese food is. We ordered a Spider Roll- Soft shell Crab must have been "re-Tempura deep fried multiple times as it was a very dark brown and not much of anything inside the shell. Really bad roll! Next up California Roll....How can you screw up California roll??? even grocery stores do a decent job of making California Roll. All of the ingredients were there except no mayo and the rice tasted like plain un-seasoned rice. Sushi is not made with plain short grain rice but needs to be seasoned with rice wine vinegar and Sugar or Mirin Sweet Rice Wine. Next was the Beef Teriyaki Rice Bowl. Rather small amount of beef, it was sliced very thin and very small pieces supper dry and no Teriyaki Sauce drizzled over the top of the meat. The rice was terribly very wet and pasty, Whoever cooked this batch of rice
needs to go back to rice cooking 101 or at least read the simple directions on a rice cooker.The person that plated it should have realized it needed to go into the garbage. I wish this restaurant success but the owner needs to pay more attention to the food that the customers are being served. All of the folks we met in Fort Bragg are quite nice but I don't believe my North Coast Neighbors know what really good Japanese food is when I look at all of the good reviews for this very bad Japanese Restaurant.
