Outrageous Spring Rolls....and more.


I have been going to this place for probably over twenty years through three different locations and the people and food are fabulous. The spring rolls are the best, especially since I really dont like some rolls that are veggie only....this one with all meat is absolutely delicious. Also, the salad dressing is a best kept secret, its great. And of course, the chicken Kushikatsu (on a stick) is wonderful. This place has never disappointed me and I will always be back for more. Keep it up!

Miss it


I worked downtown for 20 years and this place was my favorite to eat at. I work in Chardon now and my mouth waters thinking of this place. I loved the rice with the sauce on it, the salads with that special dressing, that chicken on the stick with the sauce they would put on it, and those spring rolls. Best spring rolls ever, anywhere! I found the food absolutely delicious. Wish I knew how they made that salad dressing. All they would tell me was that it was made with yogurt.

Awesome Food!


Discovered these guys at the Arcade and then followed them to The Halle Building. I moved from Cleveland in 2005 and they and Tommy's in Coventry are the only two things I miss about Cleveland. This place rocks! The tempura vegetables are the bomb. Price is great and people are fun! Wish we had one here in PA!!!!

It's decent


I go here a lot ever since I moved up here for work. Their food is reasonably priced and delicious. With your order, you usually get rice and salad to accompany the main dish. The woman behind the counter is friendly and will remember you and your order. The owner is a little annoying and will crack jokes, if not, poke fun of you. It's a little uncomfortable but for the price you pay, you can get a good lunch and will be wanting to come back more.

Amazing!


I've been coming here every so often for years...the people are friendly and hilarious, and the food is super cheap and delicious. I love coming here and do not understand why people wouldn't like it unless they have zero sense of humor.

Best Spring Roll EVER


I have been coming to this place for many years. I followed them from The Arcade to Hanna Bld and finally to their current location at The Illuminating Bld. Marvin and Cynthia, the owners, are the sweetest people!!! Yes, Marvin can be a bit overwhelming, but he has never been insulting. Most people are regulars, and everyone knows the drill. The food is outstanding and you just cannot get a better value for lunch anywhere in downtown Cleveland. They even give you FREE freshly brewed green tea!!! It's delicious. Don't listen to the naysayers. You can't go wrong here.

Gross.


The lady behind the counter is extremely nice. Other than that, the place was disgusting. It smelled bad, but becuase of rave reviews of other posters I was willing to try it. It was not food. Everything was overcooked and tasted like glue. I ended up throwing out my lunch and getting something else. I will never eat here again.

Yummy and Priced Right!!


If you want an inexpensive lunch with good food, this is the place. I enjoy the atmosphere (the cashier has fun and if you have a good sense of humor, you can have fun with him!). The lighting is good, always is clean and it's quick and easy to get in and out. Overall, I love it and try to get there at least a couple times each month now.

TOO SERIOUS


I first had this food years ago at the Arcade. I had never seen a line so long for a little restaurant but after the entertainment from the cashier and the smiles from his wife, I knew why people didn't mind waiting in line. The teriyakiki chicken is the best I ever had. I like the fact that I didn't have to watch them throw cut up raw chicken on a grill and wait for it too cook as the line got longer and longer. Keep up the good work and making me happy at lunchtime.

Love this place it is reasonably priced (has not change much in over 20 yrs.) The owner's son is very entertaining. The chicken teriyakiki may not be traditional it is however very tasty as I order that often. You must have the rice with a little pickled ginger and the blackened sesame seeds with a little of the salad dressing on top...yum.

This place is the bomb!


I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. The owner was born in Japan, her son and daughter in law run the place. The food is great! The spring roll is by far the best I have ever had. The chicken on a stick (kashikutsu??) is delicious. The salad dressing is the best I have ever had and the rice is always cooked perfectly. My favorite is the Little Somthing Feature and for the money it can never be beat! The people are very friendly and outgoing, not generally something you get in a downtown restaraunt! I would suggest to anyone to give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Let's be civil


I ordered the $3.95 veggie stir fry. The sauce was delicious but the veggies were slightly overcooked. Although the veggie portion was extremely small, luckily they are served on an overabundance of tasty rice. It also comes with a small salad. In my opinion, the value for the money is average to slightly below average, unless you love rice. The place is always busy but the service is relatively fast and the line moves quickly. The atmosphere is better than one would expect for a restaurant of this type and it is clean. The cashier can be entertaining, but I can see how some people might be put off by him. This is the first time I have been back there in many years and it seems like he has mellowed considerably. His wife is extremely nice and helpful.

I totally disagree


One of the most pleasant experiences in Cleveland is eating at this little gem of a reatauant. The previous reviwer insulted the chicken because it wasn't cut in small pieces for her, like the 'Sakia Japan''s she's seen in malls (probably the only Japanese food she ever ate). Does she have a dental problem? Does she think all food should be prepared the same by everyone? My biggest beef with that review is her insulting of the husband who works as the cashier (while his wife prepares the order). He is hilarious. If you doubt me, sit at a table near the counter. Every person leaving with their order has a huge smile or is outright laughing. The guy is a breath of fresh air, & he & his wife (who somehow still laughs at his jokes, even though he's been telling the same ones since I first saw them in '91)run a high-quality, inexpensive place for lunch.

Wouldn't Know Teriyaki If They Were Drowning In It


This is, overall, a decent restaurant. It's clean, the people are friendly (though perhaps eccentric) and the food is passable. It's inexpensive, and great if you're eating alone because they have lots of small tables, and a TV. The place has attractive Japanese decor. But they have NO IDEA what teriyaki is. After being served two baked, whole chicken breasts (teriyaki is cut into small pieces and grilled or fried) marinated in a bland sauce, I don't even have the heart to try their other offerings. I am convinced that they don't even know where Japan is, let alone how to make Japanese food.

Umm...


This is a small place that does a lot of business during lunch - the blonde lady who takes your order is efficient and friendly. However, the guy behind the counter is SO OBNOXIOUS. He prattles on, never shutting up, coming close to (if not already) offending people with his mouthing-off. If you don't get a drink (cans of soda for the most part, with the exception of green tea) he'll harangue you about it. He makes assumptions about you, your life, and practically anything else. It's a real pain. I liked the food (though the sesame chicken didn't appear to have *any* sesame in it - hmm) but that guy is such a pill, so I don't think I'll be going back again because I can't stand to deal with him. It's a shame, too, because the food is decent, and any high marks this place gets is all due to the lady who takes your order and prepares it for you.
