Many Americans have come to think take-out mix-and-match combos with egg rolls are all there is to Japanese food, but Demo Restaurant in Union Park wants you to think again.

Sporting a brand-new facade and an eye-catching mural above the parking lot, Demo serves freshly prepared Japanese-American favorites alongside an extensive menu of authentic Japanese specialties and Japanese sushi, sashimi and tempura.

"We are a very good restaurant for dining in," said owner Hideo Yamamoto, who opened Demo 15 years ago, soon after emigrating with her family from Yokohama "We try to give a very fair price and introduce customers to more variety of Japanese food."

One example is the dim sum and sushi lunch buffet. For $6.95, diners help themselves to handmade stuffed buns and dumplings, fried and white rice, several entrees such as beef with vegetables and side dishes such as marinated eggs, seaweed salad and Japanese cabbage slaw Sushi offerings include California, Philadelphia, veggie, rainbow and big rolls.

The lunch crowd can be unpredictable, but Demo entertains a full house most evenings.

The extensive menu includes many familiar favorites such as General Tso's chicken, and orange beef. The beef with vegetables, is much more flavorful than standard take-out fare. Served with a robust brown sauce and a generous portion of goodquality beef, it's very earthy and full of mushrooms.

A popular choice is the rice wine cooked chicken, which Yamamoto said is one of the most requested authentic items they sell. Served in a sizzling iron hot pot, the sweet, heady stew with tender chunks of chicken, whole garlic cloves and thick slices of ginger is a steal at $8.95.

Fixed-price banquet dinners with multiple courses for groups of six, eight or 10 are also popular among Japanese diners.
