Loved the combination we got--fabulous miso soup, salad, tempura and salmon teryaki. Nice environment in Japantown mall. Underground and street parking.

I eat here about every month in the fall and winter, and that says a lot when you consider I live and work in Montana. What do I know about the place or about Japanese food in general you might ask? I lived in Japan for two years, speak the language fluently and can read. (None of these qualities will... More

Lunch while visiting Japantown. Really good food with great service. We were there at opening on Saturday afternoon so crowd wasn't too large. Price was really reasonable and portions were generous. Recommend stooping in while in the area.

Hit and miss but its ok. Typical lunch but famous for their cold soba. Its really good. The miso soup is so authentic, not separating from the broth. The fried tempura were ordinary and nothing special. Service is just fine.Quick eats. Will try other nearby restaurants next time. Live and learn.

Had beef okonomiyaki and there were quite a few hard pieces in it. I suspect that it was the katsuo (shaved dried fish) but it was like pieces of plastic. Miso soup was very disappointing. Far too much dashi. Strange that a Japanese restaurant failed at making such a Japanese staple. Service was friendly and dining was casual. Was hoping... More

Mifune has three locations in Japantown, all with different spins. The Mifune Don is a small cafe-like place with a small amount of seating on the upper floor of the East Mall. The food here is good but not great, with the exception of the okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a regional Japanese dish that a little hard to find (although other... More

I lived for a few years in Osaka and every so often get a craving for Okonomiyaki. There was one place in Japantown that made it well but then the owner retired and the new owner cut the quality of the ingredients. Very sad. Then I was walking past Mifune Don, a tiny little restaurant with one waitress and one... More

Had a snack. It was very good. I had tonkatsu and ramen and my wife had sushi. We enjoyed it very much.
