The food is delicious and the decor is Victorian meets Asian. We often do take out because the floor plan is a little cramped. Family ownedyou will often se Pi and Mama cooking and rolling sushi, and they remember regular customers.

I used to go to this restaurant frequently back when they were in Stevens Point. My wife and I were delighted to hear this was the same restaurant...just relocated. My favorites were still there...the cucumber and crab salad and the wonderful soup. We both had the Tempura comb with Mongolian Beef. It was wonderful. The tempura vegetables were cooked to... More

Place is nice in a historic building. Nice ambiance. Simple but homey. Now to the bad part - it took 1.5 hrs to get our food!!!!! This doesn't make any sense since there were 12 people Dining in. The waitress came by a few times to apologize and explained that their policy is to fill take out orders first. Doesn't... More

We lunched here mid week and had a delightful experience. The lovely sunny porch dining area provided a very pleasant ambiance. Egg roll was delicious. Beef hibachi and shrimp tempura were tasty, but, unfortunately, there were more veggies than either beef or shrimp in the entrees.

Not expecting a Japanese restaurant so close, our school faculty had lunch there with an exchange teacher from Japan. We had a nice experience, and because of the group size, did not have extremely fast service, but that just gave us more time to talk. Not a fan of Sushi myself, but the Tempera soup was very good, and the... More

We had dinner at the Tempura House Sat. night. We had a 5:30 reservation and they took us on time. We had to wait a little longer than normal for our food. The waitress said that our meals were prepared in separate kitchens. I was a little confused by that. The service was ok.. The food was good. Overall nor... More

We showed up unannounced around 6:30 on a Monday evening and the dining room was pretty crowded. Even without a reservation, they sat us in a timely fashion (which was nice, since when I called earlier in the evening all I got was a answering machine). This restaurant is in an old home right near the downtown Lake Geneva shopping... More

Went for lunch and had an awesome experience. My wife had the Chicken Tempura, my son had the Mongolian beef and I had the Yakisoba Chicken. Everything was excellent. I tried them all, but my favorite was the Yakisoba Chicken. The service was great as well.
