The restaurant is on the Plaza at the corner of Carson/Western. They have great tempura and their lunch special is amazing. It comes with sushi, noodle soup, tempura and a salad. Very friendly service as well.

I'm not very adventurous, and so I was apprehensive when our friends from Japan wanted to take me for Japanese food. Well, I'm glad they did! It was so good! The staff was fantastic! The menu was very diverse, but then again, it's my first...More
