This place is Davis' best Japanese restaurant. They have a traditional Japanese "lunch set" menu, as well as their ammmmmazzzzzzinnnnng rolls. One of our favorites is their lobster roll. If you haven't been here yet, give it a try. Awesome service, too!

Best Japanese food in Davis, really good udon and soba. The chefs really know how to cook the food exactly how it should be. The tempura is always light and crispy.
