Niwa gives Deep Ellum a proper Japanese grill-it-yourself experience, with excellent meat cuts (grab the hanger steak and short ribs), solid noodle bowl appetizers and a plentitude of dipping sauces. Your platter of meats comes with handy labels for each type. Servers aim to pace the meal well and keep food coming like clockwork, with only occasional hiccups.

Fun fact: Follow Niwa on social media to find out about the Asian night markets which owner Jimmy Niwa participates in with other chefs from around town. There are tempting specials and seasonal dishes here, too.
