“Rice”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I had an evening meal of salmon teriyaki. The flavour and sauce were great, although the portion of salmon was moderate. To my surprise, the meal didn't come with rice. I had to pay an extra $3 to have a bowl of rice, which turned out to be rather unattractively stuck together in clumps. This lack of attention to the quality of the rice was a disappointment.

“Ramen miso noodle soup with pork, yes!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

A simple place and very reasonable with a nice wait staff. We enjoyed the coziness and met some locals as a result. They come here all the time and mentioned it is one of the most reasonably priced healthy meals in town. I concur and will return in my four days here.

“Average to Good”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Not bad Japanese food for a small town. Ingredients were fresh but execution of dishes was just standard. Do not expect high quality sushi or sashimi but overall I was pleasantly surprised by the meal.
