We had the sushi/sashimi combination dinner. The food was good & a good value. It came with miso soup & a bowl of rice. The selection is chef's choice & while everything was good, I would have preferred fresh salmon over smoked.

Food is mediocre at best. The sushi did not seem as fresh as it could be. I ordered a roll and requested no cucumbers due to an allergy. 10 minutes later it was delivered full of cucumbers to my chagrine and the chef refused to...More
