Restaurant Murata Restaurant Review

: While more expensive than many Japanese places around town, the quality of ingredients and attention to detail at Restaurant Murata justifies the price, and the kimono-clad waitresses couldn't be more gracious. The main dining room is tiny with only eight tables, so snag a spot at the sushi bar. Along with your meal, you'll enjoy the show of watching the master chefs at work. Otherwise, reserve a private tatami room for a menu sampling. We recommend the fresh sushi and sashimi, as well as the lacy tempura and soft-shell crabs. You'll also discover hard-to-find specialties such as zosui (Japanese rice soup) and Okinawa-style sushi. Hot towels offered before dining are a classy touch. Murata’s location close to the Keller Auditorium makes this a fine choice for a pre-show dinner.
