If you want authentic Japanese food, Mei is the place. The noodle dishes are outstanding. We tried the Udon curry, green tea soba and tonkatsu ramen and all were terrific. The staff are committed to you having a great experience.

This restaurant seems to offer everything...sushi, Japanese steakhouse-style grill preparation, hot pot style dishes and an array of Asian/Japanese fare. The service is always very good and the atmosphere is inviting with intimate areas and also areas for larger groups.

Food tasted better than expected. The prices are a little bit high, but the well-designed atmosphere and good service make this visit worth the price.
