We eat there once or twice a month, and always enjoy it. Get the Tuna Tekka dan, one of the more expensive items, but unbelievably good!

Miso soup is tasty and hit. The best part of my visit was finding a new roll: umeshiso. It is vegan as well so I could eat it when I was pregnant. I've eaten in, and it is a cozy spot. We also order takeout and have not been disappointed.

I have had lunch here three times, and the food as well as the service was outstanding. It is a small intimate setting, with a nice asian decor.

Ran Zan is a tiny, and I mean TINY, mom-and-pop Japanese restaurant; he's the sushi chef, she's the hostess and waits tables. The food is superb, and even though the prices have recently gone up, it's a reasonable place to dine.

The highly authentic food is made to order and it touches my soul !It's like coming home. Nobody's Miso soup tastes like this and the sushi is fresh and rich in flavor (my favorite: spider Maki). I wish I could eat here every day !

You will not be disappointed by the quality and delicious flavors of the prepared sushi. My son and I cannot get enough of this place. It is small, a dozen or so tables, not fancy but the food is fantastic. On our way there NOW! TGIF
