We had a wonderful meal in late November - great sake, nigiri, maki, boxes. This has a very special, truly Japanese atmosphere.

This place is Davis' best Japanese restaurant. They have a traditional Japanese "lunch set" menu, as well as their ammmmmazzzzzzinnnnng rolls. One of our favorites is their lobster roll. If you haven't been here yet, give it a try. Awesome service, too!

When was the last time you had Butter Fish? If you haven't had it try it! Zen toro knows exactly how to cook it! You will love it!
Best Japanese food in Davis, really good udon and soba. The chefs really know how to cook the food exactly how it should be. The tempura is always light and crispy.
I don't care for raw fish, but there were plenty of other options to choose from. Loved the salmon! Good people watching right in the heart of Davis.
