Seems very Japanese (I'm not a specialist). Food is prepared very quickly and is very fresh. I enjoyed a steak (yes !) and the side dishes were amazing ! I definitely recommend it for asian food lovers !

This place always advertise in those mailing with take out sushi trays. They are really good and reasonable. I do that fairly often but once in awhile I'll go there and sit down to eat a meal. Comfortable atmosphere, not too loud or too quiet. The service is good and the food is better. Parking can be hard at times... More

Combination lunch has many options. I had Saba shioyaki and tuna sashimi, and miso soup, my friend had beef Teriyaki and tempura and miso soup. Two other friends had yellow tail tuna and Saba shioyaki. We all said great lunch and VERY reasonable, I think $60 or so.

Average Japanese fare, but priced really cheaply. If you are on a budget and just want some Japanese fare, you can find some good deals here as they have some reasonable set lunches and dinners. The sashimi is not bad either though they slice it thinner than other sushi places. Probably because of the cheaper price.

This is a no-nonsese Japanese restaurant with decent food and entrees for under $15 - a rarity in this neighborhood. Nothing special, just good standards. Very tender rib eye teriyaki, crispy not greasy pork cutlets, spicy fried chicken wasn't spicy and batter was too hard.

I've been in this restaurant once in my holiday and we were very hungry, so we ate a lot and were surprised to find its a very cheap place to sit in. So, after few days we came back and ordered also a big meal. The cost was again not too much and the food was simple and clean. Recommended... More

I do not recommend Kitaro Sushi for fine sushi, but the food is perfect for you basic teriyaki and fun maki rolls, The service is friendly, but when busy they focus on turning tables. This place is always full.

I came here with a friend who has been before. I ordered her favorite which was the Udon Curry Noodle soup with Chicken Kaarage, oh this was so yummy! I love noodle soups in the city when the fog is chilly - a bowl of soup feels healing. My friend and I had great service, and we even over stayed... More
