The restro was cozy with simple layout but don't let the simplicity fool you. The food was amazing, wasabi and other sauces were authentic. You should try the tempura and sushi here. Yakitori was delicious as well. With plenty of green tea and friendly staffs, it's an amazing place to be.

Authentic, delicious Japanese food in very quiet and well appointed environment.

When you enter take a look to the right and you can see the clean, well-staffed kitchen. Watch and you'll notice as soon as the hot food comes out of the skillet it goes onto the plate and a server is waiting to bring it to your table. Look for female chefs who work with a smile.

I never liked chicken livers growing up, but my friend ordered them and I ate most of his. I got a sautéed pork dish, as part of one of the fixed menus, and it was excellent. I recommend this place for affordable authentic Japanese dining.

I’m Japanese. Went to try this place because I was told it was authentic. WRONG!
Ordered oyako don and Katsu don. Blend! The cook definitely forgot to use some very important ingredients plus the quality of the pork in Katsu was horrifying. It was like chewing on leather.
Ofukuro: thumbs down!
Two stars are for the miso soup( descent). Or else I would have given a 1.
Just don’t go.

Me and my friends went here for lunch during a busy hour of the day but we're still met with hot and neatly prepared yummy food that tasted authentic. I was impressed with the interior and personal greetings from the owner.
Definitely would check out if you like Japanese food.

My favourite dish here was the tofu. Feels authentic with the decorations and it’s very clean here. There are private rooms you can sit in with the Japanese doors. Decor is definitely the highlight for me. However I waited a while for my food but worth the wait!
