I haven't been here in a while because sushi has become so easy to get elsewhere, but I used to regularly get takeout from Tawara and the sushi was super fresh and delicious. The digs looked a little tired last time I was there, but...More

The always friendly staff and well prepared food makes this place a winner. Sushi is always fresh and well prepared as is everything else on the menu. It is a BYOB with a well stocked liquor store a few feet away.

The service is friendly. We were there early so we had no issues with the speed of service. They are a little slow to refill water though. The food was great and reminded us a lot of when we're in Japan. I would go back.
