    The Oyako Don is excellent. Start with the Gyoza, Edamame, Tsukemono. The Ika Geso (calamari legs) are also really good. They have good soba & udon noodle dishes, too. Home style.

    I would marry this place if I weren't already married and could marry restaurants.

    it's a gem of a restaurant, and worth the trip to Andersonville no matter what part of the city you call home.

    Sunshine Cafe is famous for home style Japanese cooking. And rightly so. They have sushi on the menu, but I've never ordered any, so I can't say how good it is. Too busy eating everything else!

    Most Japanese restaurants are all about sushi. This place is more about all Japanese cuisine: ramen, yaktori, etc.

    This is where I come when I need some food that reminds me of home. Try the: ika geso, potato croquettes, sukiyaki, and the ten zaru soba!

    Try to come during Midsummerfest. Excellent vantage point for viewing bands such as 16 Candles.

    If you like fishy fish, order the Saba, spread daikon on top, sprinkle with lemon juice and a little soy sauce, then eat like a sea god.

    If I could eat at only one restaurant for the rest of my life, this would be it. The unagi don is more precious than gold! A heaping bowl of rice and BBQ eel with tasty sauce and lettuce, I eat it whe

    If you like fishy fish, order the saba shioyaki (broiled mackerel), spread the grated daikon across the fish, squeeze the lemon juice over the daikon and add a dash of soy sauce. Classic.

    Try the potato croquettes. Delicious mashed potatoes fried into a little dough ball. For entree, I went with Katsu Don, but next time I'm going for Udon.
