Here is the yelp review

Subarashi! This small place is really thebombdotcom. When you enter, the lights are dim, the seats aren't uncomfortable chairs, they're quite comfy, the table is set up nicely, and the sushi bar is right next to you (depending on where you're seated), and the waiters are welcoming.

Our server for the evening was Eddie, who was awesome with explaining what some of the dishes were and how many pieces of sushi/rolls/maki etc. it came with. (Thank you, Eddie!) *I don't know who Eddie is, but I feel the need to point out that he did a good job.*

We started off with California rolls, which tasted fresh & weren't cold and hard like the ones that are supposedly freshly made at the supermarket. You can taste the difference... I didn't want them to disappear so quickly. ): they were so good! That avocado was perfect. But then... came our meal..

The Chicken Udon Soup was the perfect warm meal to have on this cold rainy night. Perfect ratio of noodles, veggies (celery, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms), and chicken. The chicken didn't taste like the fake pieces you'll get with chinese take-out. It tasted like homemade chicken noodle soup. You can even drink the soupy part of the dish, the soup isn't salty, flat, or watery... I swear it's perf. They give you a hefty bowl too, so don't think it won't fill you up. It definitely will. Yum in da tum!~

The beef gyoza (which is sort of similar to a dumpling) is fried (or steamed) to perfection. They're not as thick as chinese dumplings, and they feel less heavy.

The shrimp tempura rolls were SO YUMMY. The perfect amount of crunch, the teriyaki sauce drizzled on top, and the avocado all wrapped into one... I thank the sushi sensai of Japan for creating such delicacies.

My friend ordered the chicken fried rice; compared to Dee Thai's fried rice (obviously they're two different types of asian cuisines) TJ had a healthier taste. Healthy is always better, yes? Yes, of course. SO LET'S GET MORE.

To finish off, we had the tempura fried ice cream. Almost like the Thai fried ice cream, only the batter is fluffier and a tad sweeter (which I liked very much), and the green tea ice cream was creamy and sweeter as well. I personally like the Japanese version of fried ice cream better than Thai fried ice cream. I guess I just have a sweet tooth. :}

The waiter(s) were super attentive and really nice. They refilled my glass like about 7+ times, lol.

The bill came out to be almost similar to what's spent at a Thai restaurant, but at TJ's we had an appetizer & dessert included. Same pricing for the bill but more food involved?? What what! This place is great.

Fresh, tasty, clean, welcoming... I like this. I like this very much.

I believe I have a new spot. ;)
