Japanese | Santa Clara, San Jose / Silicon Valley

I made a reservation for 4 people at 6:30pm for last Friday and were pleasantly seated right away. It's a quaint, modest-sized restaurant with no frills and no fuss; just the way I like it. Don't get dissuaded by the oft-mentioned "slowness" of their service as mentioned on Yelp. This is a small business run and operated by two people and only a few people on their waitstaff. If you think you're so important that you demand fast service, then sorry Felicia, this is not the place for you. The wait, in my opinion, is far worth it especially given the quality and flavor of the dishes they make. To begin, I always believed that if a restaurant can't get the basics right, they shouldn't be making food at all. as an example: I may have had one of the best-tasting miso soups at Hatcho: simple, savory and hits the spot just right. Their Premium Sushi Gozen was just simply divine. I typically use a soy sauce dip to "enhance" flavors in the nigiri, however their rice is well-seasoned that I didn't need anything at all ( except for of course the picked ginger in between to cleanse the palate between the different types of fish). If you desire a low-key spot, quality Japanese food - not just sushi (which they do very very well), AND you want to savor every piece of rice - you will not leave this place disappointed. I will be coming back again soon, Thank you Hatcho for a lovely dining experience. More

Greek | Santa Clara, San Jose / Silicon Valley

The food, service, portions and prices we're very good. This, of course, makes for a very good value. The ambiance was little mo but that was okay. We didn't realize that this was it in an industrial area. As such, it was not very busy on a weekend night. I'm sure it's a lot busier for lunch and even weeknight dinners. We found it to be really good Greek food. More

Great food and great service. It has become so popular, a reservation is needed which isn't convenient when you just want to grab a quick lunch. The only negative is that it is way too loud inside with all those people. Hard to have a conversation if you aren't sitting next to or across from the person. More

Indian | Santa Clara, San Jose / Silicon Valley

The Food is good and delicious. The ambience is great. I have no doubt they have great quality cook. They have lots of positives including parking, cleanliness however, they need to work on 2 things. 1. SMILE - the people they are servicing are the customers, they people who take order, who bring the order, bills etc.. should carry a smile on the face or at least say Hi. I know it is hard but doable. I noticed only one gentleman was carrying smile and asking feedback from everyone. it is definitely not the owner, definitely not the one who takes order. 2. Buffet - the food was not hot. I saw the temperature stat was off it should have been hot. Again people are paying money to eat warm food. My ask to the management is to work on this feedback and I'm sure you will get more customers. More

There was a variety of dishes to choose from and they have gluten free options too! The flavor of my dish was pretty good. The prices are a little high for what you get and they charge quite a bit extra for gluten free pasta. They charged me $4 extra to switch to gluten free pasta; you can buy a whole box of gluten free pasta for that price. More

Ive eaten the prime rib each time. A bit fatty, but very tasty - thats why they get very good - not excellent. Not a top of the line steakhouse, but very good. I come here regularly.
