This location has changed owners and names so many times, I can’t even remember the last name it had, but at one point, it was called Joy Mart. Now, under the name Kagura, the menu has once again changed to be somewhat like an Asian fusion slash Korean-Japanese fair.
Upon my return here, I decided to try the Salmon Carpaccio ($9.75) which was fresh and the dressing was the best part of this dish. Not only that, it looked almost exactly like the picture in the menu.
Instead of trying some rolls, I decided to try one of their “Recommend!” items called Tori Wantan Ramen ($9.50). which is in what they call “chicken Paitan broth soup.” It was a little too heavy for my taste but the noodle was good and the potstickers were also acceptable. However, this is definitely not your traditional Japanese version of Wonton noodle soup. So if that’s what you’re looking for, don’t come here.
All in all, the service was acceptable, and they gave me free hot green tea so I’ll be trying this place again soon with a full review.
