I was able to try a variety of dishes at this cute but deceivingly large restaurant: chicken kara-age, shucked oysters, sea urchin, salad, fried tofu, takoyaki, sushi pizza, etc. Each dish continually impressed me! Even the most simplest dish, edamame, was clearly of a premium...More

We stopped-in just for the ramen. The Chashu miso was okay but the pork was dry and not tender. The vegetarian shoyu was was also okay but had an "off" musky smell that was unappetizing. Service was okay. Pricey.

Had lunch there on this nice outdoor shopping street. Food was fresh, well prepared and both looked and tasted perfect. The room was almost full, yet not noisy. Moderately priced & a stop to consider if you’re looking for an authentic taste of Japan!

I've quite picky when it comes to sushi, and this place definitely lived up to my expectations. With every bite, you can experience the freshness of the fish. Too good!
