Our family had lunch here on our way to a Japanese culture program at the Kennedy Center, and our meal was absolutely the highlight of our day! We are not experienced with Japanese food, but the server answered all our questions, and we found something for everyone (including the kids, ages 8 and 6). We were impressed with the visual appeal of the food, the variety and of course the taste. The fried foods were light and crispy, as they should be (not greasy). We noticed that for a Saturday lunch, the place was doing a brisk business, and all of the customers appeared to be locals of Asian descent. We figured it was a good sign, as they should know if the food is done right. The prices were a bit high (no lunch menu on Saturday), but we found it to be such a treat that it was well worth it. We definitely plan to go back!

Since they opened about a year and a half ago, they have changed their menu a few times and raised their prices twice by my count-- that's ALOT. The food is OK most of the time but there really should be a cap to what they can charge for a few pieces of fried pork, potato salad, cabbage topped with mayo, and miso soup. Now the price per person is $20 with a drink and tip. I just don't think the value is as good as before. You also have to be careful what you order and stick to what you know you like because some items are complete misses.

I don't eat a lot of Japanese food, so I can't really comment on how authenic the food actually tastes. With that said, the food was really good, by my tastes. Service was super. The restaurant (formerly a good Italian restaurant) is clean and attractive. It doesn't have much atmosphere, but I was there kind of early, around 6:30pm. Including tip, I only spent $35 for me and my wife -well worth it. We usually spend twice that for this quality of food.
