A little difficult to get there but I was worth it. Nice place and the stir fry shrimp with vegetables were delicious. There is a suprise at end.

Just be aware - this is a very rustic restaurant with a hippy, eclectic vibe. Tarp roof. Dirt floor. It is easier to find than you think, we walked right past it because I was expecting a more out of the way place but as others noted, it is near the soccer field. The dog will growl at you but once you pet her butt, she is your friend. As with most Asian restaurants, dessert is entirely forgettable. The vegetable tempura and tamago sushi were very good and as we arrived before a downpour, it was a cozy (albeit leaking) place to sip sake and wait out the thunderstorm.

Don't be deterred by how difficult the place is to find. Ask someone for direction or trust Google Maps. The place is so eccentric, the staff go out of their way to make you happy. Food is very good for a price that's ridiculously low.

We loved this place! It's a strange setting, but in this eclectic place not only did we have the best miso ever, the vegetarian curry and the tempura are to die for! Once we waited over an hour as it's popular so get there early and be ready for the long haul.

This place is difficult to locate, but once you are here...it will be worth it. Eating on comfy cushions within a dirt floor environment, the vibe is way cool. The food is even better. It is worth it to locate this place, settle in, and enjoy a stellar meal.
