This is our favorite Japanese Restaurant in Bay Area (near SFO). There are so many dishes to choose from the menu. We started monk fish liver, the lamp chop, fried soft shell crab and the sweet shrimp (the head was doubly fried to be very crunchy). Rita pretty much took care of us and told us what to order whenever... More

We went here at 2 pm and were glad that they served lunch until 3 pm. We had their combination ramen - with soft tofu and beef. Very tasty and a bit spicy. It came with a small bowl of friend rice, which was also good. We also ordered yakitori chicken and chicken livers. Quite good too.

the food is solid but since the remodel, the value has been diminished with the check average being like 20% higher than before.

My mother and I come here for lunch every two weeks. We usually order the bento box. It comes with miso soup and green salad which are decent. I usually order the salmon sahimi, tempura and saba mackerel on the average are not bad. Every so often I will order the salmon teriyaki which is not bad also. I give... More

We had ramen and sushi. The ramen was awful, I might as well have had top ramen. Sushi was okay, not bad but not extraordinary. The staff and other diners were screaming at eachother the entire time. So that was very annoying.

FOOD: We had mixed results with the dishes that we tried here. The Spiral udon was very flavorful and tasty. The bento box, however, was just mediocre (dull salmon and stale chicken karaage). And the spicy tuna rolls were packed with way too much rice. SERVICE: We also had mixed results with the service here. Two waitresses waited on us.... More

It was sushi. It tasted ok. Nothing exceptional, but about as good as I get back home on an average day. The bar is set fairly high for the Bay Area, so this place only gets 3 stars. It's adequate for the location, but if you have transportation, then you can undoubtedly find better.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years, and I've always been very happy with the food. This time, I came in with a coworker, expecting the same food, and similar service asis in the past. Every single thing about the experience was terrible... first, the waitress obviously could not care less. Second, we ordered edamommy, and... More

I have been coming here on and off for years and every time I come it feels like it gets more and more mundane. They have a bar which can comfortably seat 8 with a big screen tv in front. There are lots of tables strewn about and it's very easy to navigate through them. Clean tables and plenty of... More
