Mediocre... – Since raising their prices, I have found this to be less of a deal... it is no-fuss japanese teriyaki dishes that make great take-out. Their prices are above what one should be paying for this stuff, though.
Everything's pretty good; casual; nice people working there – Been going here for about 8 years on and of. I've ordered food from New Japan under every kind of emotional condition and the food always made me feel better. It's tasty and reasonably priced. The tempura is nothing to write home about but everything else is all right. Sometimes there is a cute Japanese guy who does not speak perfect English but smiles a lot. I like when he's working. My favorites are the deluxe sushi platter and teriyaki beef. Bring cash -- the only setback -- but they do have an ATM machine inside and next door at 7-11. They remodeled, so it looks a lot nicer than it used to.
Excellent Low Price, No Fuss Japanese Food. – Great place to grab a quick bite to eat. Not a lot of ambience although when they remodeled they did a nice job of "sprucing" it up. Extremely low prices for a good quality meal. Have eaten the teriyaki, sushi as well as tempura and I have never had a bad meal. Whether to-go or dine-in, its a great value. Authentic yet reasonable prices. A rare find. Beer and saki available, for a low price. I definitely recommend this!
cheap, neighborhood Japanese – It's a very low-fuss, self-serve Japanese restaurant... Not really a place to go if you're looking for quality sushi, but the have good teriyaki and ramen dishes. The atmosphere is very mediocre, but I guess that's what you would pretty much expect. The parking lot is really cramped and it gets pretty crowded during meal times, so you might have to find meter parking on the street. Don't park in the 7-11 parking spots, because the owners will find out~
best beef teriyaki – Really great beef teriyaki and great sushi for the price. Am I going to complain that the service is indifferent if the food is great and the prices are cheap? No. I have not tried the tempura so I can't vouch for that. My boyfriend is extremely picky and doesn't eat fish. I love sushi and this is the only Japanese place where we can both be happy with the food (I have found that it is really hard to find a good sushi place that has great beek teriyaki).
Great sushi cheap prices – best sushi for the price. you can get a boat which serves 2 for less than 20 bucks. very fresh, very fast. yummy!!
horrible service low budget food – it used to be a semi-halfway-decent place to get low budget japanese food, but the service is terribly bad. no smile, no thank you, no 'i'll be with you in a sec', no acknowledgement as you wait for service. so much for japanese hospitality. go to sawtelle blvd. and order from the many other japanese restaurants there or go to the market in the little plaza and they have pre-made sushi, bento boxes, etc. even a microwave to heat up!
Beef Teriyaki – This place is good for a quite bite. The room is really ugly and the tables are usually sticky, and the parking lot is quite seedy. However ... the beef teriyaki plate is delicious. Wonderfully seasoned, lean beef along with a tasty salad and rice. You can add a california roll (of average quality) for a couple bucks. It's not cheap (probably $10/person) but it's good for a cheap lunch or dinner out.
High prices, low quality – This place used to be good about 10 years ago. Over the years, the prices had gone up, which is fine...but the quality of the food as well as the service has gone down.....Even though this is a "take out" place, they charge you "dine in" prices for low quality food. I don't recommend this place.
