The Ramen was spot on and the Nori chips are a must

Food is excellent, service is slow. Nori chips take forever to cook so should be ordered in advance.

The tonkatsu I had was perhaps the best ever. Crispy and juicy. Happy hour runs until 7 on weeknights and I took advantage of that (on a Thursday) for a draft Asahi and a tofu appetizer. It seems you can park legally in the Safeway lot next door. Not fancy but the food is great.

Looking for sushi in the rockridge area. Triangulated on Mitami through Google, Yelp, and OT reviews. NIce place. Neighborhood ambience. Sat at the sushi bar, and was struck by the friendliness and expertise of the cutters. In addition to all the standards, they had a 8-10 fresh offerings. Started with melt in your mouth Hamachi, Toro, and Sake sashimi, but the most amazing presentations that night were salmon roe marinated in soy sauce and fresh uni. Doubled up on almost everything we ordered. Along the way we sampled barracuda and monkfish liver. All delicious. I've eaten great sushi in many major cities. The Mitami offering is world class. My partner and I both agreed we had to make a special trip back.

I had to take my Japanese friends to a lunch get-together on weekends and Mitama is the only place as long as I know open for lunch. I, including my friends, was a bit skeptical because of the convenience but we were all pleasantly surprised by the quality of their food. This place may look a little too simple to some, but they serve genuine Japanese food. Tempura is crisp as it should be and sushi melts on your tongue. I am so happy to know this place.

It was family dinner occasion for the four of us. As there was a Warriors game so the restaurant was not full on Saturday night. We ordered our usual combination dinners, with sashimi, salmon teriyaki, shrimp tempura etc. The rolls were very fresh and the starters of deep fried oysters and seaweed were of the normal high standard. The combination dinner is a hearty meal in a bento box and we can mix and match a variety of food choices. We just keep coming back. The only complaint will be the decor is a bit outdated and quite dark - walls need a facelift. Then the experience will be superb

Nice and unassuming, but really good food. I tried the Robata Grill, which I thought was superb, especially the Salmon.
