Nice little Japanese restaurant. Food was well prepared and fresh. Yakitori, soba, gyoza and sashimi were all top notch. I would visit again. There is also free parking in the grocery store next door if eating at the restaurant.

This restaurant is my go-to neighborhood spot for Japanese food! Rockridge has many restaurants to offer, but this restaurant will satisfy any sushi fan. The fish is always fresh, the rolls are tasty, and the bento box is a tough one to beat. Besides the...More

We often get sushi here for "take out." Service is quick, and the seafood is very fresh. The chef's selection is a great choice that includes delicious miso soup. Whether you eat in or carry out, you can't miss.

Took my son and his girlfriend out for a nice meal. Big portions, good food. We had good service. Tempura was crispy, combination dinner with noodles and hearty soup dishes were great.

The waitstaff left much to be desired, however we sat at the sushi bar and got amazing personalized recommendations and service from the sushi chef. We ordered and were served directly by the chef. I have never liked salmon sashimi, but we ordered a second...More

I come here once or twice a month, usually for lunch, and almost always order a bento box of salmon, veggie teriyaki, miso soup, rice, salad. Consistently good -- not memorably outstanding, but always good.
