Santa Rosa's Taste of Japan
Thanks to Stephanie and Cynthia for letting us all know about a Taste of Japan in Santa Rosa. I purchased lunch there today and it was terrific, and at very reasonable prices.
I'll reiterate some of what has been said.
Fresh Sushi lunch to go 11:00-1:00 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday's only. The chef, Takeshi Uchida, is turning out some of the best Sushi out of the kitchen of the Oddfellows Hall across the street from the Junior College. I had the Sushi combination today and it was fantastic. Everything is made to order with great detail. The tuna was silky smooth, the salmon, which is not one of my favorites, was wonderfully smooth also. The egg omelet, and the crunchy seaweed salad was very good, and was not just a afterthought. The whole meal was just great, and just $6.95 out the door. The picture looks good, but it does not do justice to how it tasted.
Here's the url to a recent discussion;

I wanted to try it on Friday, but didn't get there until about a quarter after 1pm. Dashed in anyway --- sushi chef was as nice as can be, but he was sold out of everything. I noticed a few tables and chairs set up in an adjoining room. Can sushi customers use those or were those for another function at the hall?
re: Melanie Wong
When I was there the tables and chairs were being used for a written test that was being taken. In fact, I was having a friendly conversation with one of the Chef's regulars when a gentleman stepped in and asked us to keep our voices down, otherwise I would not have known about the other room with the tables and chairs.
It's good to know to get there early. Next time it's the Sashimi lunch.
