Good eats, recommend – The good news here is that if you enjoy Japanese food or other pan-Asian foods, and enjoy home-made meals, that's what this place offers. The wood interior is nice, and the servers are all very nice and are not intrusive, and not neglectful.

My wife had the ramen with gyoza and she said it's the best in the area, better than Samurai noodle.

I have had the gyudon and that is wonderful, despite it being a simple dish, they didn't skimp on it and it had a nice boiled beef taste to it.

The house sake isn't that bad either! It is good cold or hot.

The only bad points are, pretty much only street parking or a lot nearby, and they happen to "run out" of ramen frequently, so call ahead.

Best Izakaya (Japanese pub food), ramen, & bento in the International District! – Affordable, quality, authentic Japanese food in a gorgeous woody location. Izakaya (On premises consumption of alcohol & food) dishes are akin to small-plate dishes or tapas, but they also have traditional entrees. They have a full bar, featuring shochu (distilled alcohol made of rice, sweet potato, barley - similar to vodka) which outsells sake in Japan.

Owner's wife is from Kagoshima & her brother, interior designer in Kagoshima, designed the gorgeous wood paneled restaurant. Full bar made from sequoia.

Try the "garlic gobo fry" a deep-fried burdock root similar to french fries for a starter. They sell the most "saba"(mackerel) in the International District. Known for their bento boxes thanks to chef Yari-san that owned the former Togetsu. Also they serve Kyushu-style ramen & they boil a whole leg bone for 8-10 hours to make the broth.

This is a family restaurant even though they have a separate bar. I had my 40th birthday party there and it's great for large parties.

This neighborhood restaurant in Seattle's pan-Asian district offers the standard Japanese fare with a stocked bar on hand. – In Short
Eye-catching akachochin red paper lanterns hanging outside this Japanese restaurant draw diners back to this nostalgic space once occupied by Takohachi, the Chinatown/International District eatery known for its homestyle meals. Sleek wood finishing touches, minimalist design and a spacious open layout affirm this is a different territory, yet some items on the menu will look familiar. Choices include bento box, ramen, udon, donburi and various appetizers. Entrees are served with rice, miso soup and salad.

Bar seating is available for a shorter wait.

Though billed as an izakaya--a late-night Japanese pub serving snack-size dishes--this venue doesn't quite follow its traditional sense.
