Great Japanese in Queens
Looking for a great Japanese restaurant in Queens. The only thing is I cannot eat sushi, I am pregnant. I am not far from Sunnyside, Woodside area.
Great Japanese just doesn't exist in Queens. But you're very fortunate that you live close enough to Manhattan's east side, which has a good concentration of good-great Japanese places, so that's where you should be getting it.
There is a very good Japanese place in Whitestone called Takara.
I was there Fri. nite for some gyoza and sushi.
I'd say half of the clientele were Japanese, having a very nice time.
If I can't get to Manhattan, I like Joy's Cook on Roosevelt and 65th. The owners are very friendly.
How about Yamakaze? They do a very fine noodle! It's owned by nepalese, but these guys know their way around a japanese noodle soup.
