We were doing the circle island drive and were starving. So we took out our Google map app and discovered this place. It is totally an unassuming place. In fact, I might suggest some people might be scared off from the outside and its location...More

We had a quick meal before heading to the airport and we each enjoyed what we ordered. Misoyaki butterfish, tempura and tonkatsu served teishoku or bento box style were excellent. Quick and friendly service too.

A hole in the wall type restaurant that serves home cooked Japanese food. Atmosphere is like a diner but service is friendly and good.

We love the food here. Its a small place in a hide-away spot. The service is good and the food is even better. Parking is limited but most of the locals know where to find them. Best Japanese food in the area.

If you want Japanese food with the local flair, this is the place. They still got the Japanese influence. Menu is still the same after all these years, infused with some new nuances by her sons.

Stumbled across the restaurant by accident as it is in a bit of an odd location. Nonetheless, we've eaten there a number of times. Huge lunch specials that my young grandson and I share and still can't finish. Shrimp and vegetable temper is the best...More
