I brought my Mother here for a treat, as we were both craving some Ramen. As a little girl she lived in Japan and so it is always fun for her to meet anyone who is Japanese. When we entered, we went to the counter...More

Just a little hole in the wall...but delicious Japanese food. I have not had Katsudon this good since I enjoyed it in Japan many, many years ago. The owner is sentimental about the comfort food his mother made him as a child and the quality...More

My friend and I decided one late afternoon to find a new restaurant and we found this little hole in the wall. The restaurant itself is quite small, but comfortable, clean, and decorated with Japanese flare. The woman who took our order and made our...More
