It is a singular and small restaurant hidden in San Mateo hills. It is a small and cosy local distributed in a bar and 3 tables. No more that 15 people at the same time. It is dark and intimate. You cannot book more than...More

This wonderful gem unexpectedly is located in an upscale strip mall in San Mateo and is a first rate dining experience on all levels. The restaurant is tastefully (no pun intended) and beautifully decorated, and seats only 18 or so diners, which creates an intimate...More

This was one of the more memorable Japanese meals we ever had. Wykuriya is a tiny restaurant ran by a chef and his very efficient wife. Every dish was beautifully presented and every bite memorable. Cant wait to go again!
