Dining With Denise Neil

Just opened: Golden Bay Japanese Restaurant

The teeny-tiny restaurant space at 3811 W. 13th St. that used to house Mama-Sans has a new tenant.

Brian and Jing Kitchens just opened Golden Bay Japanese Restaurant in the spot, which sits next to Knolla’s Pizza at 13th and West. The restaurant specializes in sushi, tempura and noodle dishes, Brian Kitchens said. He gave the space a good deep cleaning and added a sushi bar before opening.

I stopped in yesterday to pick up a menu, and the dining room smelled amazing. The menu lists lots of sushi rolls, appetizers from the sushi bar and dishes such as Yakisoba and Udon soup. I’m looking forward to trying it. Wichita can always use more sushi. Amiright?
