Popular place for sushi and other Japanese items. The miso soup to start was spiced just right and was followed by combo plates with tempura shrimp and vegies with rice to put your meat dishes on. The Sesame chicken was lightly breaded and not greasy....More

Great bargains with the daily lunch specials. Everything I have tried has been very yummy. I have gone for lunch with many different friends and they all loved it. In the winter the steaming cast iron bowl of udon noodle soup is very satisfying.

Had sukiyaki for dinner, was disappointed at the variety of ingredients in the soup. No kamboko, no egg, very little noodles, only two pieces of carrots, mostly onion and Napa cabbage. However, the broth was flavorful. Tea was $2.50. The box dinner is a better...More

not many fish and not the freshest sushi. Neighborhood place with lots of kids at the table. Concentrates more on rolls than fish but have the basics minus Uni. Hot food selection good and service was prompt.

I make an extra effort to make time to eat here whenever I drive through Sacramento. The food is excellent; I especially enjoy the teriyaki chicken. The portions are generous, and the prices are reasonable. Service is prompt and efficient.
