Stopped into this local place near the Capitol area for lunch today. I'm trying to do low carb, so I wanted to avoid the rice and noodle dishes which, I've heard, are quite good. I ordered edamame and a bowl of the chicken vegetable soup. The edamame was served hot and salted, and it was good. The soup came, and... More

Before I start about the food. Please beware that this place has a large glass front and easily can be mistaken as being an open concept. This guy walked right into the glass and knocked himself out. Really weird. The food was ok. The teriyaki beef, vegetables and brown rice was good. My husband had the grilled chicken and shrimp... More

While at a conference at UT, a colleague suggested that we stop for some Japanese food for dinner. We all got some rice bowls with tempura veggies and shrimp. They were simple and fantastic. We also had their version of a mojito. The mint was super fresh and the drink was so refreshing in the warm Austin evening. The price... More

This may not be a 5-star restaurant, but it's a solid 4-star. Everything (food, service, menu, location) is good, nothing bad that I've encountered. This is a regular lunch spot for business (2-3 times a month, two dozen experiences total), and I've never had a bad lunch here. Only one dinner; was also good. This part of town doesn't offer...

Visiting from Chicago, found this little gem in Austin. Yes, the fresh lemonade is great for a hot summer night. Some of us got sushi, some got tempura, and I got the Teppan grilled shrimp. The salad with ginger dressing was just so-so, but the house soup was terrific. My grilled shrimp and veggies were also very tasty and cooked... More

The beautifully and expertly prepared meals are always worth the trip to this restaurant. Every food item is delicately produced and a visual as well as an eating delight. I love the tofu steaks and my husband really enjoys eating the Tori Kara.

The food was okay, certainly edible, but not spectacular. The fresh squeezed lemonade was excellent. Prices were average and service was very good.

We were there for dinner during summer when UTA was not in session. There were two other customers when we got there (around 7PM on a week night) and we did not see anyone else entering the restaurant. Dining area is spacious, clean, and had a modern decor. Service was friendly and prompt. Vegetable tempura was average and overpriced. Sushi... More

I eat at this little restaurant quite often and enjoy its light fare. Good daytime, business lunch (or other) destination. Not quite the ambiance you want for dinner.
