We were seated in an empty restaurant @ 6PM, never a good sign. The owner lady was not the friendliest person you have met. 5 minutes after being seated , the server came around to take drink order. We ordered sake & Sapporo. Sake showed up after 10 minutes of a beer, I think he was using microwave to heat... More

Great place to swing by and grab a quick lunch. The food was amazing and the service was quick. Small place but defiantly worth stopping by and trying a lunch special - you can't miss them. They are at the entrance to help you make your decision!

I lived in Japan 5 years and I've only been to a handful of "Japanese restaurants" since returning to the USA 20 years ago. This is one of them. Don't let the strip mall location fool you. The food is top notch and the tastes and smells of the food took me back. All the staff during our visit were... More

I love the grilled fish and tempura, they also have great chicken Katsu and great choices on bento boxes and lunch specials. The sushi bar gets very busy so try to get their early or order sushi first thing. The staff is always very friendly and has a very japanese traditional feel to the atmosphere.

Authentic everything, actually. This place is really good. Service is good but expect a bit of a language barrier, nothing terrible though. The Ramen here is amazing. They have sushi also. This isn't one of those trendy steakhouses. Very good stuff.

My daughter and I went here for lunch after a Saturday morning of shopping. We arrived right at Noon opening and there was a line of people waiting to get in. The restaurant was jam-packed and we got the last available table. We were given a lunch menu, but no sushi ala carte menu, which I thought a little strange... More

My family and I eat here often. We love the authentic vibe of this family run restaurant. The people who work here remember their customers. They have watched my son grow and even "reprimand" him when he doesn't finish his meal! The food is delicious. After my operation I NEEDED the comfort of the authentic Ramen. The attention they gave... More

I found this little gem while on a trip to the south end of Charlotte. Ordered take out of Chicken Teriyaki. I figured when I got it that it would be the standard fare you get at a Japanese steakhouse (Iceberg lettuce for the salad and diced chicken, zucchini, onion for the meal). Boy was I wrong! First, when I... More

I visited for lunch. The restaurant opens at 12 and closes at 2:00pm There is ALWAYS a line and queue if you arrive between 12-1230 so suggest you opt for a later lunch around 1:00 to avoid a long wait for a table or counter. There are usually choices of 3-4 bento box lunches which combine sushi, sashimi, salad, fish/meat... More

Before traditional Japanese was popular Musashi was here. They were basically the first to take a chance on this in Charlotte and it's worth it. It's amazing to see how this family run restaurant had only Japanese families to now a mix of everyone. The service isn't extremely professional, meaning the prep time and dishes come out at various times... More
