Refined traditional Japanese cuisine with a seafood focus, including some hard-to-find preparations.- Google
"My favorite dish is their ochazuke."
"It also came with some fresh wasabi and some other condiments."

this is a great hidden gem if you ever decide to venture to the outer sunset. The menu is HUGE. Only because each menu item can be prepared a wide variety of ways. The dishes are small but easily sharable among a couple people. Keep in mind they take reservations but require that each person spend at least $30(which is easy to do with alcohol involved).

Great food. Very authentic Japanese food that I have never had in the US. There are usually tables available also. Don't understand why this restaurant with food hard to match in San Francisco and very reasonably prices always have tables, even on the weekend. Amazing value.

I am in love with this restaurant. So many great things about it. I love the ambiance. Little, quaint space with some soft music setting the tone. The service is wonderful. And the food is incredible. I also love the fact that so much is traditional Japanese food that I am not familiar with. I would *kill* to have this restaurant in Arizona. I think that the only reason that this place wasn't hours deep in wait and priced through the roof might be that it's a bit of a hike from downtown? It was phenomenal though. First of all there is a huge, huge menu and it's pretty tough to determine what to order. They have each fish listed with 7-10 different preparations. Then there is a specials menu and a beer and sake menu. I'm pretty overwhelmed with all of it so I put myself in the hands of the lovely older ladies that man the restaurant and it always turns out great. My favorite dish is their ochazuke. If you're not familiar with it is basically a very simple dish where you pour tea over rice and add some savory toppings. With this version, the tea was actually replaced with a gorgeous bonito broth. You could have it with a selection of ume, cod roe, salmon, salmon eggs and maybe a couple other items. I've had it with ikura and salmon. Both were amazing. It also came with some fresh wasabi and some other condiments. Inside the bowl was some shaved nori, some pickled radish, some other herbs and something that looked like bee pollen? If I lived here, I'd swing by for this at least weekly (double in the winter). The flavors are super subtle but they are so clean and everything goes together just perfectly. I've had so many meals where the chef puts together combinations that don't better the ingredients. I've had many where the chef really does elevate the ingredients and then I've had a few dishes here and there where it's perfect. This was the latter. Can't wait to go back!

Authentic. Slow service.

The service was very slow. We spent about 2 hours watching the disturbed look on each other's faces as each dish came. Definitely for a refined palate.

Excellent non-sushi Japanese food.

Most Authentic Japanese Food I've had outside a home cooked meal in Japan. A little nicer than your typical Izakaya. The sign out front makes me laugh-"No set meals no sushi" and I think that says it all. I loved the Ochazuke and Yakionigiri. We had some kind of young bamboo shoot dish that was amazing.
