Crowded but nice casual restaurant. Miso soup was good. I guess they use “dashi” for base soup. That’s why the soup was nice more than I expected. I never imagined I could have a real miso soup in CALIFORNIA.

A bit too noisy restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. I had noodle Udon vegetable soup which was absolutely fantastic. Affordable as lunch for 3 was around 70$ . Totally recommended. 5 stars.

There is a sushi bar to sit at and watch the chefs. However, all cooked food happens in the kitchen. If you're looking for a the style of cooking where they cook hot food in front of you, look up a teppanyaki place.
