it used to be a semi-halfway-decent place to get low budget japanese food, but the service is terribly bad. no smile, no thank you, no 'i'll be with you in a sec', no acknowledgement as you wait for service. so much for japanese hospitality. go to sawtelle blvd. and order from the many other japanese restaurants there or go to the market in the little plaza and they have pre-made sushi, bento boxes, etc. even a microwave to heat up!
Pros: low budget food, take out
Cons: bad service, bad japanese food, tempura sucks
