We’ve been coming here for years. There is always a crowd, and there is a good reason for that. Ramen, Curry, Omurice, Tonkatsu, and more. They usually add pickled ginger to the ramen which can overpower other flavors- ask for it on the side of...More

How many times you walked into an ethnic restaurant and their chef is Spanish ? We have been to Temari Café for many years because of its authenticity; their food is the closest reminder of the small shops in Japan in a small cozy space....More

Ordered one of the lunch combos (oysters at $19.95) which came with a good miso soup and a chef selected appetizer that was a 4 item meal in itself. Friendly and vigorous service.

I went here primarily for a ramen fix. I started with the yellowtail sashimi appetizer which was 6 medium to small-sized pieces for about $12. I didn't order any sushi; be forwarned that the sushi prices are high and per single piece. The fish taste...More

Temari Cafe isn't much to look at but it serves up authentic Japanese fare at reasonable prices. More than sushi, Temari serves many traditional Japanese meals. The miso ramen was very good. The fatty tuna was equally good. The service was excellent and the staff...More
