I was definitely surprised by how cheap everything was. We had ordered a veggie tempura, agedashi tofu, kyu don, and avocado roll. Veggie tempura was very unique. It had a cinnamon scent to it. I don't know if the scent is from the batter or the vegetables itself, I thought that part was interesting. However, I thought the flour coating on both the tempura and agedashi tofu was a bit too thick. The avocado roll was moderate and kyu don tasted like Korean bbq with rice and veggies. I had expected a more sweet taste of the Japanese Tsuyu sauce, but that had not fulfilled to my taste. Overall, the quality was not bad, but it wasn't great either. However, if I think of the price, I think it was a pretty decent payoff.
We went in at closing time and were still taken in. The owners were getting ready to wrap it up and we had to wait for a few of the dishes as they ran out of rice. However, to compensate for the wait, we kept receiving all types of appetizers for free to pass the time. This was a very nice experience and we have gone back since. I would recommend to anyone who has a craving for japanese to stop by.
We would appreciate a few more vegetarian dishes such as veggie gyoza etc.
