It is hard to find good restaurants in this area. Comparing to few others around this is a good place. We tried hibachi. Good portions. I liked their ginger sauce. It is reasonably priced also.

Close to a class I was attending. We went early for dinner. The soup was not hot. We had a bento box and the courses came out too fast not allowing us time to eat the soup and salad. The service was ok as the place was mostly empty.

Reasonably priced rolls and beer from four to seven p.m. they have a limited happy hour menu but the prices of the rolls onn the list are all under nine dollars each. Beers are about 2.50 each as well. Fast and freindly service.

Sort of reminded me of the movie East Side Sushi movie since the guy was Hispanic but making Japanese Cuisine and did a good job!

Probably not the most authentic Japanese restaurant in the world but it's not bad considering the location. As has been said elsewhere, happy hour is very cheap and, overall, the food is perfectly decent without being mind blowingly great. If you are in the area I wouldn't put you off although probably not worth a special trip.

Ichibon has been here since the 90's (maybe even before). Sadly, it's just not what it used to be. It draws a decent sized lunch crowd, but other than that it is hard to find this place when it's busy. The average lunch special is about $11, and actually comes with quite alot of food. However, if you are going... More

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant for amaebi. I love amaebi so I had to try the place. Yes, my friend was right; amaebi was very good. The shrimp was of the medium large size but still sweet. It was prepared without any other stuff on it which is what I liked; no other flavor to overtake shrimp's own... More

They do have reasonable happy hour roll prices from 4 to 7. The rolls were basic and lacking something. Service was good.
