Fresh and tasty. Dean the sushi chef was at his best when he was drinking but alas, the liver can't take any more. Chilean seabass, sauteed sashito, beef udon, and everything else on the menu never failed.
This neighborhood Japanese restaurant has been around for over thirty years, and I've eaten there for just about as long. Although there is a sushi bar, my favorites here have always been such standard Japanese fare as niku dofu (a beef and tofu stew), tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlets), tempura, and yakizakana (teriyaki fish). The staff is friendly and professional, and the clientele is overwhelmingly local and middle class. There is a nearby municipal parking lot on Butler which is free on Sundays and after 6 pm. A good choice for a consistently good meal.
