OK, as I say many times, Crescent City doesn't have a lot of options. As for Japaneses, very very little option.
My wife and I stopped in the other night because we wanted something not fried or heavy and thought this would be a good option. Toyama is a small place and when we walked in there was one other couple there (Saturday night at 8). We took a booth and looked the menu over. They do not server liquor, even though they have it on the menu so we got tea. We ordered the grilled squid to start and my wife got a roll and I ordered a noodle dish.
They provided soup, though it was a bit different in taste from others soups I have had, but it was OK. They brought the squid, grilled with onions and peppers. I am always surprised, squid is so cheap and what we got was not much squid for the money. Squid is only a dollar a pound or so, I expected a pile of squid, it was a modest plate. My wife didn't really like it, not much flavor and a bit oily. I think the 'grilled' meant on a flat grill top, not a flame grill.
They brought the roll and noodles. The noodles were OK but not remarkable. A bit pasty and the beef was tough. My wife's roll was better, though she said the mayo like sauce on it seemed to much. The crab tasted fresh though. Not much else to say..
So for us, it was OK. We didn't order a lot of sushi so can't talk much about that. It is a good alternative to the fast food and heavier other places to eat. But remember, this is Crescent City, very little options.
I give it 4 stars because it is an option to the other places, tastes OK and is not a dive. If I were home, this would be a 2 or 3 star place.
