This is a small restaurant where the daughter makes the recommendations and dad is behind the counter. We chanced upon it and were glad we went. The cooked food - particularly the tofu - is definitely worth trying, besides the fresh and tasty sashimi. Wait...More

Small family run operation, great food. Ramen broth is spot on. Feels like you're in one of the small shops in Tokyo.

Service was fine - as well as can be offered. It's a mom & pop (& daughter) shop & it certainly feels like so. It's homey & very casual. Loved the steamed spinach (must order if you like spinach), it's full of umami flavor. We've...More

This place is not the Americanized Japanese food of many of us think of. It is authentic, small plates, cooked by grandpa, served by granddaughter, rung up by grandma. The smoked salmon is to die for.

Most main course dishes will run between $9 and $20 depending particularly on the type of seafood ordered. For instance, the eel is more expensive than chicken.
