Well-executed Japanese home cooking. The lunch menu features some of the best deals in Austin, like the gorgeous sashimi lunch. The ramen is a treat, too. In 2017, the restaurant moved just down the street into bigger digs.

California-based sushi chain ups the fun by rolling plates past your table via conveyor belt. Grab whatever looks good, or put in special request to the kitchen; we're particular fans of the tonkotsu ramen and the chicken karaage.
