* While there isn’t a kids menu officially there are some kid-friendly items on the regular menu. For our 3-year-old (and we see other families ordering the same items) we like to order the house-made tofu (choice of cold or warm and comes in a cool jar), tamago (sweet egg) sushi piece), ikura (fish roe) sushi piece, edamame, shrimp tempura roll.
Good for infants, toddlers and little kids however if your toddler needs a booster seat you should bring your own.
Appropriate for lunch or dinner.
Sippy Cup Rating:(3.0 / 5)
- Between 5pm-7 pm it’s filled with families with young children. This is a good time to go. They don’t take reservations.
- They have colorful plastic bowls for kids and kid’s chopsticks on request.
- Try their daily Obanzai (Japanese Tapas) which are always great and reasonably priced. My wife and I are in love with their Chirashi.
