AAA Inspector Notes
With a thoughtfully curated sushi roll list, extensive menu of traditional fare and 48 varieties of sake, this sedate café is a top pick for diners seeking well-crafted Japanese cuisine. Have a seat at the sushi bar to watch the chefs create dishes that double as art. At lunch, enjoy teriyaki, tempura and donburi entrées, plus soba and udon noodle bowls. Dinner selections expand to include sukiyaki, katsu and shabu-shabu, in which beef and vegetables are cooked in broth at the table. The sushi is considered some of the best in the Triangle, eschewing the usual overwrought westernized rolls. Try the Mary roll, a California roll topped with generous chunks of spicy tuna.
