In a tranquil setting, this restaurant has been serving classic
Japanese food to the local clients for 20 years. There is even a sushi roll named
"Sunnyside." The two, long narrow rooms are simply decorated and offer
comfortable seating at large, blonde wood tables and either can easily be used as a room
for private parties.
Start with your favorite beverage (we chose sake) and your freshly made
Sushi or Sashimi. Or, you might opt (as we did) for a shared Dinner Special "Bon
Voyage Boat" a large boat-shaped tray containing sushi, Sashimi, Chicken
Teriyaki or Beef Kushiyaki (chunks on skewers with peppers & onions) along with Soy
Bean Soup and rice as well as orange slices for dessert ($28 for 2 persons, $57 for 3).
The Sushi was excellent, and included, salmon, yellowtail and tuna as
well as California rolls and a house special that is a winner: thin cucumber strips
wrapped around crab meat and avocado. Other Sushi included a hot and spicy Cajun Special
($3.75 for 6) and the Sunnyside ($6 for 6) comprised of salmon, yellowtail, cucumber,
avocado, flying fish eggs, tempura flakes and a special house sauce. You might also want
to try the Spicy Spider ($7.50 for 5) made with soft shell crab, spicy tuna, avocado,
mango and cucumber.
Other Japanese favorites on the menu included beef, pork or chicken
Teriyaki ($11.75 to $8.25). Then there is the "Donburi" offerings for $7.50.
That translates to "something on rice" and includes deep fried pork & egg,
chicken teriyaki or tempura. For a treat, order the Donburi with barbecued eel ($13.50).
On another part of the menu you will find offerings for the vegetable eater: Vegetable
Tempura or Vegetable Sauté for $6.50. Noodle dishes are popular offerings running from
those mixed with seafood or seaweed to a meat addition- $7.50 to 7.75.
The dinner special called "Bid Eye Tuna" is barbecued with a
ginger-radish sauce and Japanese Nameko mushrooms. We found it well worth the $12.50.
The young servers are eager to please and are helpful in making your
selection from the menu. This is the right place to relax and enjoy the picturesque and
