They said the (head) chef was injured so half of their menu was unavailable. No sushi nor yakitori and negi toro maki. We settled for sashimi and gyudon.

Fish is of bad quality, salmon sashimi was like vacuum packed salmon you'll find in groceries and sliced thinly, Shime Saba just okay, uni not fresh- it already had this bitter after taste.

I think for the better half of the meal, we tried to convince ourselves that the gyudon is okay because the place looks 'cute' and like it would fit in little tokyo, but actually, the beef just lacked flavor. I appreciate though that it isn't smothered with sauce.

We felt so disappointed and ripped off that we decided to get sushi and rolls in another place right after.

People who are interested in trying authentic Japanese food have a few options outside Little Tokyo, and it is a relief to have one in Quezon City! Shonan Tei looks ordinary from the outside but the interior, with its bar area, Japanese-themed items and low tables will tell you that this place is something special. The food is fresh and delicious, but not in an overdone sort of way. The salmon sashimi was not fishy, the cold soba was firm, and the yakitori was full of flavor. The wagyu pieces in the photo were amazing -- fatty and juicy and extremely memorable. The price is a little higher than your average Japanese resto but you get what you pay for. Looking forward to my next visit!

No picture because it will take for our food to be serve 45 minutes.
One of our order katsudon was not ordered by the waitress.
We left.
I think their food is delicious because in observation they have a lot of regular costumer.
But... take note: need to wait for 45 min to 60 min for the order to be serve.

Its my first time to try this new place along mindanao ave.
well, I'm impressed with the food.
Service is great 128077128077128077128077128077
Janet (owner) is very accommodating and hands on.
I like how she personally explains their menu and even the parts of her small spaced soon to be loved place.

Its a new thing along mindanao ave.
great izakaya in quezon city!
experiencing Japanese food without sitting on a chair... Since we are a group of 7 we were asked to dine at the far end area of the resto...

We had to remove our shoes just like any Japanese tradition. (JumAjapan)
Sit Japanese style while having dinner is cool.
Menu is great 128077 - wide variety of food
I love their kani salad128077128077128077128077128077 (180)
Tekkamaki (tuna sushi) 128077128077128077128077128077 (140)
Tried their beer " kirin beer" (120) a bit milder than pale pilsen but a bit stronger than san mig light... 128513128513
Their grilled stuffs are priced 50-70 per order
Their free appetizer is great! - potato salad
I just like everything!

I hope they expand the area.
Improve their interiors to feel more Japanese

Looking forward to spend a party here soon!

The owner of the place Janet is very accomodating. It is written all over that the serving will be max of 45mins. But they always say pasensya na po matagal ang food. Everything is worth the wait, the food tastes so amazing.

They suggest is to call them first so they can prepare early.

I will definitely go back. :)

A real izakaya in QC! The best Japanese restaurant in Quezon City. Super authentic great comfort food. You'll never go wrong with whatever you order here. Personal favorites are their salmon sashimi, nametake orosi, miso soup, sanma shioyaki, kaika don (attached photo), negima, hotate... Oh my the list goes on!

And finish everything off with their different kinds of sake and sochu. They also have japanese beers and other flavored drinks.

Hidden gem in along Mindanao Ave.! It's a Japanese restaurant that's open til 1 AM, except on Mondays because they're closed then.

Too bad there's no salmon sashimi. I ordered tamago and also got to try the tuna sashimi. The sashimi is delicious! Very tender and fresh. I love the tamago, too.

So happy to discover this joint! Now I don't have to go all the way to Nihon in Makati for late night Japanese food cravings.

Taking one star off because the smoke from the kitchen gets to the dining area. It stung our eyes. 128557 Their exhaust definitely needs to be improved.

Ate here twice and it still needs improvement. In the picture my bill was 860. Exhaust still needs work. Mejo authentic yung food. Mejo pricey not for feint of heart. Kulang pa yung choices nila. Better luck next time.
