The restaurant is atypical of any Japanese restaurants in the local neighbourhood. It seems to be popular with locals and the lady boss is friendly and welcoming. She is also seems to be familiar with her customers and will have a chat with them. I think the restaurant is family run with her husband working at the sushi and sashimi counter and her son helps to wait on tables as well. The interior is somewhat dark, hence the photos did not come out too well.
Agedashi tofu - I was happy to see more than two pieces served, which seems to be the case in some Japanese restaurants. The tofu was soft and evenly coated. The dashi sauce was tasty and light. There was a generous serve of teriyaki chicken. The chicken pieces were tender with a lovely caramelised outer. The bowl of udon was plain and simple just the way my girls like it served with crispy tempura prawn and vegetables.
