Traditional Japanese atmosphere. Food is definitely worth the price. Sushi was fabulous. Also highly recommend the noodles, very tasty. Service was fine. Location is out of the way from downtown Cincinnati but definitely worth the trip.

The Japanese food. We ordered “Nabe” which is a Japanese stew. The taste is not bad , really normal. There’s are 2 JP beer brand, KIRIN Ichiban and Sapporo Kuro Label. The restaurant is suit for inviting not JP people.

If you want authentic Japanese food, Mei is the place. The noodle dishes are outstanding. We tried the Udon curry, green tea soba and tonkatsu ramen and all were terrific. The staff are committed to you having a great experience.
