Even though this place has been in my neighborhood for years I never once ate in there cause I thought of their pricing to be more expensive and my sister told me that their rolls are quite small in portion. One day I got a take out of their Makoto Roll, Crispy California Roll and Dynamite Roll. It was indeed 'small portion' just like my sis described for the price it costs. The taste was not bad. It's not fantastic but not bad. I find the rice on their rolls to be mostly sticky and a bit mushy, like it's all stuck together and not in individual bits. I suppose that's the Japanese style of making rolls that way? Anyways overall the food I ordered was OK only, and for the price I paid for it I wasn't impressed at all.
It wasn't until I ordered their box lunch the other day; I ordered their Box B ($10.50); When the food came I was thoroughly pleased by the arrangement and portion. It had an assortment of Tempura (2 prawn, 4 veggies), a half portion of Chicken Teriyaki (There was a choice of Chicken or Beef, I chose Chicken.) and a bowl of rice, 3 pieces of California Roll and a salmon and tuna nigiri, a regular veggie salad, potato salad, a piece of orange and a bowl of Miso soup. Isn't that plenty? I enjoyed every single dish in this Box! Well besides the California Rolls cause I still think it's average compared to some I've tried. The chicken was tender and browned beautifully by the cooking and the Tempura was crispy yet not greasy at all. The salads were also refreshing, and the orange was so sweet and delicious that I think they must have spent a lot of effort eye picking it! I was pretty full by the time I finished the whole thing and I was totally satisfied. I think this is probably their best valued item on the menu, and it was indeed good value. If you ever come here definitely try out the box.
This small restaurant is run by actual Japanese people, unlike most others which are run by Korean or Chinese. And I think it is family operated given the small amount of staff they have and the fact that they all speak Japanese. The lack of staff means their service may not be too great. The last time I went there was only the chef standing at the counter greeting guests and taking orders. Even though there wasn't too many people he was so occupied that he even forgot to take one table's order, the guests had to walk up to him to give him their orders. I personally don't really mind the service quality though. As long as the food is good, that's good enough for me. :)
