Though it is located in a very drab, industrial-looking strip mall north of Evansville, Indiana, Iwataya is a top-notch Japanese restaurant. With a wide variety of seating arrangements (traditional American-style dining table and chairs, booths, or floor sitting on tatami mats). For those who like tatami mats but have with limited flexibility, you will like the recessed well for your legs.
The menu has a wide variety of sushi, sashimi, tempura, and assorted Japanese appetizers. The miso soup, Yakatori, and Gyoza (pork dumplings) are especially good. Overall, the atmosphere is very authentic and the service is top-notch. This is definitely one of the best choices for Japanese fare in the region. Indeed, it can rival restaurants in other urban centers such as LA, NY, or Dallas.
