I loved this restaurant. Excellent food, quiet, great family that ran it. Deeply missed. Rents in Newton Center are driving away many businesses. Not a destination for much other than high end nouveau food.

Unpretentious, simple Japanese fare with friendly and attentive service. Family-friendly and reasonably priced. Wouldn’t go out if my way for this, but a nice local option.

Had a quick dinner with an old friend - nice selection of Asian food, quick service and very nice. Food was nice - not spectacular, but very nice indeed. Beef teriyaki was great, the California roll was not worth it :). Overall, good place!

The hot pot of bim bop is so healthy with all of the fresh vegetables. We like it with tofu, salmon or beef. The staff is so cordial and accommodating. The shrimp tempura ia also a favorite.
