My wife and I had a very nice date night at Heiwa Shokudo. We very much enjoyed the salmon sushi and the shrimp butterfly sushi. The free hot tea was a nice perk. The restaurant is small and the parking is very limited.

My daughter & I shared a hot pot dish w/rice, seafood, and veggies. It hit the spot. Place looks like a hole in the wall, however food was excellent as was the service.

We've been here several times in the past though not in the last few years. A quaint place which we found to be small and dark we now recognize as being quite Japanese. That's what a few trips to Japan can do for you. We...More

Having badgered various locals for the best sushi spot, consensus guided my wife and me to Heiwa Shokudo. We were enjoying an unanticipated getaway with our youngest, and this quiet, intimate spot seemed spot on. The restaurant is small, and that is exactly what we...More

Went there for lunch. Although the sushi was OK quality and the portion was fair sized, my meal was basically very unenjoyable. First I wanted to sit outside but because I was alone I couldn't take up a table for 4. Inside was pretty much...More
