“Good casual neighborhood dining”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Small friendly limited menu restaurant. The owner is right there doing everything, so sometimes patience is required. Food is good and consistent. Reasonably priced.

“Good, Hole in the wall, Japanese”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

We really like going here to enjoy the food without the distractions of theme restaurants. The food is really good for the price. They have a small staff so can get overwhelmed at times. Try the sukiyaki. I'd never had it before, anywhere, but now I'm hooked.

“Kuniko’s Teriyaki Grill”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

Located in a small shopping center, almost indiscernible from all the other small stores nearby, Kuniko’s is a rare find for those who enjoy Japanese cuisine. Going in, one would think they are in a typical takeout joint, and they do a good amount of takeout business, but there are tables to sit at. So don’t let this little “hole in the wall” place fool you, the food out does the décor; as it should. Kuniko’s serves Japanese cuisine; none of the Fusion cuisine that has become a fad in many Asian influenced restaurants.

For the appetizer, we tried the Tempura Shrimp and Vegetables; very lightly battered, shrimp and vegetables cooked well, only slightly greasy; and a flavorful sauce for dipping.

We shared a main entrée of Salmon Teriyaki; a nicely cooked, large salmon filet upon a layer of slivered onions; the teriyaki sauce was delectable. It was served with rice and a small lettuce salad with ginger dressing.

Then came the sushi rolls; expertly rolled, cut perfectly and delicious. Tempura Shrimp roll – the tempura shrimp was cooked well, just as it had been with the appetizer. Samurai roll - crunchy breaded cutlet and cheese with a deliciously sweet and spicy miso paste. Tokyo roll -
crab meat and cucumber on the inside with avocado and tuna on the outside; a decadent pleasure for the mouth.

When it comes to Kuniko’s, don’t judge a book by its cover; judge it by the quality and flavor.
