I was driving back to NJ and the traffic was terrible. So I pulled off and found this place. It came with excellent reviews and I was not disappointed. I started out with the miso soup and had the Salmon entree - both were excellent

Otani has very fresh sashimi and amazing specialty rolls. We have visited Otani which can have a wait with no reservation, because of it being extremely popular...but beat the wait by taking it home. Our 2.5 year old, and my wife, love the Teriyaki Chicken...More
