There’s no sense in dining next to the Pacific Ocean without enjoying some fresh seafood, and Greystone Prime Steakhouse & Seafood more than delivers. The menu alone, featuring dishes like lobster spaghetti diavolo, applewood smoked Chinook salmon, and famous Japanese Wagyu beef cut to order, will have you drooling. Tajima serves up authentic and meticulously crafted Japanese ramen. Every aspect of the dish is carefully considered, from noodle size and texture to pH level.
