They call Panko coating "tempura", so be aware. Missing items and in-frequent visits by server make this a place to avoid.

The food was great and the hibachi grill chef was very talented, keeping up lively conversation while juggling cooking utensils and making quite a show of creating our meal.

Having been here several times with my grandchildren who live nearby, I was shocked at the experience tonight. We were seated at the grill table by the hostess, who didn't say a word to inform us anything was unusual. After waiting for a while I noticed that there seemed to only be one cook for the three large grill tables... More

Espanola's gem of a restaurant. The best food and service. Feels like family from the minute you walk in.

The sushi. rice bowls and grill is very well prepared, always fresh. The Teppan Grill is where we eat most of the time (granddaughter loves the grill) the preparation is always fun to watch (Omar and Eric are both excellent chefs). The atmosphere and service is always excellent and food is excellent. My husband & I usually share a dinner... More

This is also the only one in Espanola as well. For anyone who knows Japanese food I would recommend driving somewhere else. If you can't and absolutely need Japanese food have the grilled food but certainly not sushi. For kids who love that anyway it's fine and the cooks put on the expected show and are very friendly too.

The food was delicious, service was great and will return. Our server, Eric was caring and helpful in selecting our meal. We will ask for him when we return on weekends. The uniqueness of the ingredients with a NM flare is the best. Who would have thought sushi would be served with green chile!

Little Española has a great sushi restaurant. Lots of choices even for us vegetarians. They will make the sushi you want that may not be on the menu. Seaweed salad is delicious.

The service here was good but that is about all I can say that is positive. The miso soup tasted strongly of fish. The Teriyaki shrimp rice bowl was greasy and tasteless...and at $13.00, pretty expensive. Thank goodness for sriacha sauce. But this is what one would expect for a Japanese restaurant in the middle of northern New Mexico. This... More
