A simple menu of Japanese fare, including standard sushi rolls for those wanting something on the go. Though, I would recommend you take a seat and stay a while.
Indoors, the large wooden tables with benches allow for working space, but the best spot is outdoors sheltered underneath the plane tree; you could easily forget there's a campus of 30,000 students surrounding you.

The menu offers something to please everyone. Small dishes of edamame, gyoza and okonomiyaki, which are great as bar snacks, a light meal, or for sharing; and larger dishes of pork belly, wagyu burger, teriyaki chicken, salmon, beef curry, and three choices for vegetarians including a delicious three egg gluten free omelette made with mushrooms, tomatoes, cabbage and spring onion, on steamed rice and tofu steak, served in a bowl with rice, grilled silken tofu, mushroom, soy bean, and a red miso sauce.
My favourite is the Tsubu Salmon cured salmon marinated with Ume and orange, a fluffy two egg omelette, and lightly picked cucumber and wakame salad, served on a bed of sweet Japanese rice. When the meal is this good, I don't consider trying anything else. In fact, my friends stick to their favourites too.
The restaurant is licensed, so have a sneaky drink during the day, or head here for Friday night after work drinks for a lively and engaging crowd of academics.
