Ahhh. After pouring over the menu, we selected Spring Roll Apps, Seaweed Salad, Tuna Tataki, & a Pork Egg Foo Yung, Chicken Fingers & Fried rice combo. The server was happy to bring our drinks & give us some chat time. Meanwhile we scoped out the various seating options, which include 2 private dining rooms - 1 seating 10, the... More

The food & service were great and the food was very good. There are not many choices in the area and we took a shot and it turned out very good. Worth the 15 minute wait! LOL!

Food very good, waitress excellent service. Sashimi are fresh, lobster well cooked. Sushi are quite tasty. On the second visit, the order to go of special Thai noodle is excellent with the right smoky flavor.

The restaurant was nicely presented, staff were reasonably polite. Although the name is Japanese, they serve mainly Chinese dishes, along with Thai and Japanese. Food was average quality, not overly tasty. Unfortunately, our serving of chicken wings was ice cold (raw) and had to be sent back. The waiter appeared confused, but had the wings reheated and returned. We didn't... More

The newly renovated Shinbashi restaurant offered an interesting lunch menu. They have a sushi bar with Asian artisans making fresh sushi. The platters that arrived at the tables looked very appetizing and fresh. The pretty Asian waitress seated me and answered a few menu questions. She recommended the box lunch witch was a good choice. The food was OK and... More

we came out from the L.L. Bean outlet and decided to walk across the street and try it having read the reviews. We had the rolls for lunch including eel and spicy yellow tail and it was excellent. The rolls were way above average and the fish had such a fine flavor.

Service was mediocre. The food is delicious, though a lot of the items were pricey. I would come here again, though because it's difficult to find good Asian cuisine. I've been here twice.
