I try not to eat near the more touristy place around pioneer square. But man O man. She had the sushi both raw and cooked. Fresh as can be. The miso soup was divine. The tempura was crisp, clean and delicious. They had a lunch bento box and I had the fried mackerel. Maybe we got lucky...maybe we were extra... More

I eat here for lunch several times a year. Sometimes, I will even make a special trip across town when I'm really craving my favorite dish. The staff is friendly, but this place does get crowded at lunch, so don't expect fine dining service. The menu is big enough that everyone will find something they like and the sushi is... More

We arrived at the tail end of lunch hour on a weekday to a half-empty restaurant. After waiting more than five minutes at the cashier's station (nobody bothered to look in that direction), we flagged down a staff member to seat us. The delays continued - getting water, getting menus, and so on. When our main course arrived, I asked... More

Found this place walking around. They have a good lunch deal. The food and service was good and friendly. If you come during lunch or dinner rush hour plan to wait as this is a SMALL place.

Pleasant small sushi restaurant, relatively low price and not fussy. Best for take-aways, with plenty to choose from. Friendly staff

I had a bowl of noodle soup. The wife had the lunch box with tempura veggies and skewered chicken and salad with rice. We like Japanese food. This food seemed as though it didn't want to offend anyone. Very middle of the road, very bland. The lunchtime service was good. The ice water was cold. Everything is about 10 bucks... More

We were looking for a place to take our daughter before a concert and thought we would look for her favorite cuisine --- Japanese. The ambiance is nil. The waitress was pleasant. The food was 'meh'. The chicken and beef teriyaki didn't taste of the marinade and the marinade lacked substance. The food wasn't quite hot. The dinner prices were... More

You blink and you will miss this place. We found it by chance when we were looking for a place for lunch. We had to wait for a bit and were then seated at the counter. There were lots on the menu to choose from and more if you also look at the boards. We had the perennial favourite tonkatsu... More

I had chasu ramen but it was not what I expected. The broth should have been clear beef but instead was murky and not flavorful. The noodles, meat, and vegetables were good.
