Except for a rather wide expanse of ocean, only a few miles of land separate Sebastopol from the shores of Japan. And so it seems appropriate that our Sonoma County town would have a couple of great Japanese restaurants- Sushi Tozai and Sushi Hana.
Sushi Tozai offers fresh quality sushi and cooked items like tempura, teriyaki chicken and prawns. Patrons rave about their Seaweed Salad, Carburetor Roll and Sunomono- an appetizer made of cucumber rounds topped with snow crab, spicy tuna and a pinch of tobiko flying-fish roe, all dressed in savory-tangy, house-made sauces.
A full selection of sake, local wines and Japanese beers is offered to complement the menu.
