First, lets get the unpleasantries out of the way? The Restaurant's exterior could use some freshening up and the interior is "cozy" but certainly not elegant. The location *seems* questionable at first blush, but is actually in a safe and fenced in area. It is cash only, and the waits are what I would "normally" call excessive. So, why do... More

You won't find any Japanese restaurant any better authentic than this. This is coming from one whose has spent 16 years in Japan and my wife who is also Japanese.

Love the ramen here! It's one of the best ramen we ever tasted in USA! Believe me, when comes to ramen we are the expert! Try the hot and spicy miso ramen, it's the bomb! And their gyoza is the best too! But make sure you bring cash as they don't accept credit cards! And you need to be patient... More

This restaurant was recommended by a coworker. We went for dinner and tried their noodle dish, which was great. This was a great recommendation. We can't wait to come back to try their other items.

I was so surprised to amazing food. Here is NOT Tex! Here is Japan? テキサス州、それもエルパソで日本食は期待していなかったのですが、かなりのレベルでした。日本人が経営しているので、まさに日本の味でした。アメリカ飯に飽きていた私には至福の時です。ラーメンがイイね!

Tried this place out from a recommendation from a friend. Food was good, server was nice, and the establishment was clean (don't let the exterior fool you). The bad, they ran out of sushi and curry on a Saturday night, service was slow (waited an hour for food), and they didn't accept credit card (which was a real inconvenience because... More

Excellent food. This is NOT fast food. Expect the service that you would receive in your neighbor's home. The tv is on and the kids are sitting quietly playing with their toys at the table next to you. The restaurant sits in the middle of a lower end neighborhood. DO NOT BE FOOLED, this is not about image...this is about... More

Drove 45 minutes to get there, excited to try their food. Arrived at a sign stating they do not take credit cards. Dissapointed, I drove another 45 minutes to home. Didn't have debit/atm card on me... So note to everyone: they don't take credit cards!

This place serves authentic Japanese food, as authentic as it gets. The udon and soba noodles were delicious and the shrimp and vegetable tempura were prepared just right. The veggie tempura even included this slice of squash that looks like a mini canteloupe under the batter which I have only seen in Japan. Haven't tried the sushi. Place is a... More
