Of the several restaurants in Japantown, this is one of the most authentic, and it is the only one with tatami rooms. The waitresses wear kimonos and the sushi chefs are always engaged in some sort of banter. All give great service. Guests can eat solo at the sushi bar, or it can be a great place for larger parties. Lunch specials are in the $8 range, and there are a huge variety of Japanese appetizers available for dinner. Go for the Eel Donburi.
We found the restaurant very quickly, I had to look for a while to find the parking lot. I arrived for dinner and they got us (party of 3) seated. When we came to the seat, though, I found someone's half-drunk cup concealed in the corner of the table, as well as only 2 chopsticks. I asked them to clean the table and for more chopsticks, and they did that quickly and sincerely.I ordered the Uni roll, and a sashimi combo with a side order of a bowl of rice. We got through ordering, and it took about 10- 15 minutes to fulfill our orders. Their sashimi is tasty, and the sauce they use on the Uni Roll is deliciously spicy. When they asked if we wanted dessert, I ordered Green Tea Ice Cream. Somehow, it tasted much colder than normal ice cream, and I got a nasty headache. The price is pretty reasonable. I would highly recommend coming here for dinner.
As for lunch it is very cheap. My friend ordered 2 enormous (say, the size of 1.5 full size dictionaries) boxes of california rolls (one plain and one with salmon eggs on top) for less than ten dollars.
Overall, it is a great restaurant with reasonable prices and delicious food.
I had the love boat and it was really bad. I felt the food was from a regular buffett where food has been outside for a long time. The tempura was soft, sushi was not fresh, the soft crab was in a oily thick dough.
It was terrible. I expected better food since it is in Japantown. I should have known better since nobody eating inside was Japanese!
Tasty food, good selection for sushi and non-sushi alike - the wide variety of combinations assures that you'll find something you'll like. It's in the heart of San Jose Japantown and if you don't get scared away by the plastic food adorning its windows, you'll be treated to a hearty, tasty meal at a reasonable price.
With so many excellent restaurants in Japantown, it is a shame to eat the tourist fare. It is cute to grab your sushi of of the little boats, but this is expensive entertainment for mediocre sushi. Go across the street to Kaita, down the block to Tsugaru, or up the block to Sushi Maru. And please do not call it a California Roll if it has mayonnaise in it. Maybe Midwest crab salad roll.
This is a nice place for a lunch w/ a group or co-workers. It offers a nice array of sushi and bento boxes for those afraid of trying sushi. Their amaebi, unagi, and hamachi are excellent, and if you're not into sushi, their bento boxes are usually good enough to fill you up for the remainder of your work day. The atmosphere is also quite nice, with the engaging sushi chefs and cute waitresses in their kimonos. I've been here several times and service has been great everytime. The sushi selection is nice, but not extravagant, so if you're into a place that offers some good, basic sushi and several bento options, this is a good place to check out. Another nice thing about this place is that it's easy to find, if you're planning on meeting up with others rather than driving together. It's located in a corner, so it's easy to see from different streets. Parking is usually difficult during lunch hours, but if you get there before or after the lunch rush, it's not a hard place to find parking somewhere near the place.
