Any old-school Japanese/Japanese-American places?

Bonko | Aug 2, 2011 04:33 PM

I'm looking for a Japanese restaurant to take my parents that has dependable "old school" fare, like tempura and chicken teriyaki combination dinners, sukiyaki, etc. Not sushi-centric. I was thinking of something akin to the Japanese and Japanese-American family places you'd see in Little Tokyo or West LA in the 70's and early 80's. On the quieter side--I thought of Tajima, but it's a bit loud and young for them. Geographically,anywhere from Encinitas to central San Diego would be good.
