I have been to Japan and the beef udon is 100% authentic. Tempura is excellent, and we always enjoy the free hot green tea. An order of mocha for dessert can serve 3 people, as a small serving...it is just awesome. We always go back...More

Authentic cuisine, great service. Hours are restrictive so make sure to check before heading there. Sushi is delightful, as well as their bowls. Great prices, usually about 25$ for the two of us. My favorite place in Bozeman.

Small eatery place. Menu was bare minimal. No sushi served during lunch. Soft shell crab was tiny. Teriyaki chicken was way overcooked and tough to bite. Noodle's broth seemed to be made from soup paste and way too salty (lots of msg). Waiter seems kinda...More

The most authentic Japanese restaurant in Bozeman. The food is out of this world. Sushi, Udon, Chicken Katsu and the sauces and soup broths are amazing. I believe all are made from scratch. Cozy dining area and great staff. If you love Japanese food, then...More
