Best Japanese food in Davis, really good udon and soba. The chefs really know how to cook the food exactly how it should be. The tempura is always light and crispy.

I don't care for raw fish, but there were plenty of other options to choose from. Loved the salmon! Good people watching right in the heart of Davis.
