A few years back, Sonobana was known as Benkay, but they changed the name. The food is still wonderful and reasonably priced. Their to-go cannot be beat--ready on time, packaged, and hot (just remember to bring your own tupperware for the udon). They recently redid the tatami floors of the private dining area and smoking is way in the back--roomy, but the smoke does not escape. Huge fan of the sushi bar, bento boxes, teriyaki, geso kara age (fried squid), cutlets, and their salad dressing is out of this world. Parking can get a little cramped, but it's a wide open lot that stretches all the way to Target. You'll never be without a spot. Service is good, and I've never waited longer than 15 minutes for a table, even on a Friday night. Enjoy!
Pros: reasonably priced, nice servers, great food
Cons: parking can get cramped, not a large waiting area
