POPULAR DISH
The two best dishes at this quaint Japanese curry house are the beef curry and the katsu curry. Both of these items are served with your choice of white rice or spaghetti noodles. The spaghetti noodles are sauteed with green bell peppers and onion and served steaming hot. Curry dishes can be ordered in mild, medium or hot. Don't forget to try the Curry pan! Curry pan is a fried slightly sweet dough wrapped around a small portion of curried meat. It's available in mild or spicy. Careful! The spicy one will burn your pants off!

UNIQUE DISH
The curry house serves something that most people have never had. Japanese Style spaghetti. At first glance Japanese style spaghetti resembles the Italian spaghetti that we are all familiar with. the Japanese version however comes without the tomato sauce and is instead served with a variety of toppings. some of the more exotic choices are Chili shrimp, Tarako (salted cod roe) and Ika (squid).

DRINKS
They have a variety of beer wine and sake. Soft drinks are also available.

SEATING
The restaurant is a little on the small side with about 15-20 tables. The restaurant fills up quickly and there is usually a line forming before the restaurant opens for dinner.

AMBIENCE/CLIENTELE
The restaurant is located in a strip mall. The restaurant itself has a very bright and clean atmosphere with mostly asian clientele. Everyone should feel comfortable here though.

EXTRAS/NOTES
Restaurant closes Monday-Friday between lunch and dinner, 2:30-5:30 PM. This restaurant is great for take out. They do a lot of take-out business and have specialzed containers.
