Had a great dinner last night with my daughter. The fish was extremely fresh and wonderful and we also ordered one of the Japanese curry, served with rice. It was delicious! Will return for sure. Cute, inviting atmosphere, and outdoor seating available, too.

Super fresh nigiri including fatty tuna at market prices and sea urchin. Tuna tartar is a must! They also serve Orion beer.

My niece invited me to lunch at Izakaya Wa based on the availability of one menu item: Takoyaki (octopus fritter balls) - and they did not disappoint. Boy am I glad she discovered this gem! Most (American) Japanese restaurants focus on sushi, but I know...More
