This is a real treasure, tucked away just off of campus and near downtown. I've been here twice for dinner. Both times we received attentive service. The food is fresh, tasty and a good price. We will continue to dine here in the future.

Not a very impressive street presence - but the foot at this Japanese restaurant is better than average. Sushi was very fresh and had some original flare. Nice variety of noodle dishes. Drink menu includes a selection of Saki.

This Japanese restaurant is a treasure. They have expanded their menu to include sushi rolls, udon, katsu, teppan yaki, donburi, and mabu. Everything is a visual delight and a tasty treat.
