Not your typical sushi bar or Japanese grill place, this reminded me of the neighborhood places I frequented while living in suburban Tokyo several decades ago. I can only comment on one dish -- katsudon -- breaded pork cutlet served over rice in a bowl,...More

My wife and I decided to try Temari after work and found some very delicious options in the menu among others. We just had a few, like appetizers like chicken liver with ginger and their famous pork tonkatsu. Both were yummy. Try it with their...More
