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.

We used a groupon for dinner. The ambience is maple cafeteria, with a yoga studio bouncing and pounding on your head above you. Not romantic or enchanting.

The service is typical non japanese asian immigrant. No charm, no attention, appetizer served with dinner, etc.

The food was ok to decent. Nice seaweed salad and light appetizing tempura.
Sushi was ok...octopus good.

Priced about right for its quality in newton.

Delicious! From the miso soup and appetizer to the Korean hot stone dish:

Gopdol Bibim Bab - prepared in sizzling stone pot - mixed with beef & vegetables or chicken, spicy pork or tofu with korean chili sauce

Be sure to let it sizzle for a few minutes before you stir it up (not touching the hot stone of course) to get the rice nice and crunchy.

Will be back again soon - that yummy!

This used to be our regular sushi spot but after 5 years or so of regular dining we got tired of the menu that never changed. It was always good and the service was always decent but the menu was unimaginative and constant.

Went back this weekend just for a change of pace and the service is still decent and the food is good but the menu is exactly the same as it was when we were last there 6 or 7 years ago. They did seem to add the word "New" before "Sapporo" on the menu and name tags but that's just a ruse. Nothing is new. Same as it ever was and that's ok if you aren't looking for a regular joint.

We've been to this restaurant before on previous visits to the Needham area.

The restaurant is located downstairs from the street level. On-street parking and a city lot is available about 2 blocks away.

We enjoyed our favorite Beef Bulgogi, which is OUTSTANDING!!!

We even got a take-out for our daughter-in-law, who was at home babysitting our twin grandchildren.

Service was outstanding as usual!!!
