Japan West is a wonderful dining experience! The table grill cooking is entertaining and the staff and chefs are very accommodating! Japan West has been in Findlay for many years with a wonderful reputation, delicious food and newly remodeled look!

Visited February 2012

“A vast improvement over its dark, dank past.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

Japan West for many years was the only place in town for Japanese food. Now that there are choices, Japan West responded in a big way with both remodeling of the interior and revamping its menu. The dark interior up front is now bright and inviting; the sushi bar has been moved all the way up front. Fair selection of sushi at lunchtime; udon was first-rate.
