Hiding ina strip mall, you'd never guess there would be quality sushi as well as Kal-bi, and many other cooked items. Gina, the owner and chef does a fantastic job!

Outstanding food and service. Some of the best sushi rolls and tempura we have ever had. Some of the top sushi rolls to consider are the A.Ru and the Sunset rolls; awesome! Also recommend the Vegetable and Shrimp tempura appetizer. Very fresh ingredients!
