I found this place after searching for donburi on google, and I’m amazed how good the food is! We went for dinner and had karaage, takoyaki, unagi don, and omurice. Everything was amazing, the food was very authentic, and the wait staff were nice and helpful. Service was not super quick, but the food was brought out quickly once ready, and everything was perfectly cooked when it arrived.If I still lived here I’d be at this izakaya every week to enjoy a few beers and some tasty skewers and fried food!!

The seafood is absolutely fresh!!!! I ordered the Chirashi bowl; the sashimi is so fresh!!!!Loved the side dishes in the chirashi bowl. The table had chicken karaage (yummy), 1 of the popular appetizers to get, and sashimi. The clam sashimi is absolutely fresh as well as the yellowtail and salmon!!!! Will definitely come back when I visit. The service is great as well.

I got extremely sick with Raw fish this Friday dinning. I never ever in my 20 years eating sashimi got that sick . I ve been to this place more than 5 times and there is a young gal tgat works there that she is super awesome. The first time I try this place our server was older lady that was extremely rude and racist I should say . But I wanted to give another try and the next six times we got lucky with the young gal. But Friday night our server was the same lady who is in her 70's she drop some water and didn't let us to finish the order of Sake. She came back only w one sake cup and again didn't let me to tell her we need more obviously there were 4 of us. I asked the other server at that point if he can serve us tonight due to her being extremely rude and unprofessional I m very surprised that owner despite the fact that many people left comment here of her racist personality still let her work there. I am just very curious since I never ever got sick from eating sashimi all my life if she intended to put something in my food or sake? I am going to contact the owner of this place directly about this as well

We love coming here and always come right when they open at 5pm because this place gets crowded.We ordered:-Chicken karaage - juicy thigh meat-Sukiyaki udon- when I crave for udon, I come here. The broth is so beefy and lots of tender fatty thin meats. It’s so rich in flavors.-Takoyaki - I like that this is on the smaller side because it’s less wheat flour and more octopus.-Fried meatloaf curry entree - It comes with miso soup and salad. The miso soup is so good. We got spice level 8 for the curry which had a tiny kick.The parking lot is super tight and small that people park on the street. Another reason why we come early is to get a parking spot.

Pretty good. I enjoyed the curry katsu. It tasted homey. But, I did like other katsus more and I think it was more expensive here.
