    The okonomiyaki at Obento-ya tops that of Moto-I and Midori's - better presentation, more tang and zip.

    This sushi spot is a fave of students looking to stretch their dollar but who don't want to get shortchanged on quality or choices. Their extensive menu offers a variety from sushi to ramen noodles.

    The Monday special is ramen, and it's worth the trip-- but you can't get it to go, so plan to eat in.

    The real stars here are the bento boxes, the sushi is a nice addon but not what Obento-ya does best.

    I'm not a big ramen fan but I have to admit, they have the best ramen in the cities (I've tried a few and the broth tastes bland). Too bad they only serve ramen in Monday's. Looks like I got to wait!

    My favorite japanese place so far! Even offered a GF-friendly bento box which is my first! Great service, fresh food, a value. Get their early for seating or you will have to wait a bit.
