Last week, I took my girlfriend there for lunch and we were not really impressed with it. It is a bit pricy and the food is average; I ordered the teriyaki chicken and it was just okay. Not sure if I wanna go back.

Don't come here looking for sushi. Here, Japanese country fare is the focus with donburri and curries. Ramen is highlighted in the evening. Small place with a counter on each wall and just a few tables. By 6 the place was full and slurping is...More

Great News! Kokoro is back! They reopened last week. The best home style Japanese food. The menu is slightly different, but still fantastic. Lunch hours only, 11-3:30, Mon-Sat. Japanese food lovers rejoice!!

Heavenly just about anything, had tried just about everything on the menu before it closed by going with various friends and eating off one another's plate. We all pray in the future this place reopens to delight our taste buds again!

Drove all the way from Utah and picked this place over all the resturaunts in town and it was closed so staff could have a break. Bummer. The vietnamese place across the street was amazing though!

Food is great and portion is adequate. Only downside is the small restaurant size with inadequate seating. Nonetheless, people eat and go, so the wait is short.

Be patient, it is a small place and they are understaffed. Go early and big groups will be hard to seat. That being said, I had the most tastiest tonkatsu ramen with the freshest noodles and deep, savory broth with all the pork goodness that...More

Restaurant only had one person working the front counter and he obviously had no training. They were so crowded at 11:45 a cook put up the closed sign, which several people ignored. A few minutes later there were so many people in the room customers...More
