Last I had was was the Tonkatsu box and it was genuine! Comes with homemade Japanese soup and egg dish all delicious. Service was okay but not outstanding. I... More

We ere lat as we had difficulty estimating the travel time to get there. That was not a problem for the hosts. Friendly efficient and full of smiles. The torture was to select something from the menu - too many choices. We will have to come back. Eventually we selected a combination tray that was just magic. Wish I can... More

We came here for lunch mid week when the surrounding area was extremely crowded. Quick service and a very acceptable bento lunch box with iced tea and cold face clothes. Nothing out of the ordinary but I would eat here again without hesitation.

Food is average, service is average, price is average. Huge lunch time crowd as there are no better office lunch restaurants around.

My first visit here today and I was impressed. The place is hard to find as the entrance/name is covered by the neighboring restaurant's awning. I walked by twice before I found the place. It was worth the search. I had the tempura sashimi lunch box. Every thing was fresh and tasty and the tempura was crisp. The portions were... More
