All of their roles are always half off and they offer a military discount which is always a plus whenever your vacationing and trying to save a little. We ordered the Green Peace roll, Black Tiger roll, and the Sake Hunter roll. All three were...More

I've been on this restaurant so many times and the food, lets just say, inconsistent. Sometimes it is good, sometimes it isn't. So as the servers, some are friendly, some are plain snob.

We had the sashimi combo which came with sashimi, obviously, rice, soup and salad. Was very filling and reasonably priced. The only negative was that they forgot our edamame beans until right at the end which was okay because we were full by then so...More

Dined at this establishment a few months ago and was disappointed with food quality. Decided to return for an Anniversary dinner and was happy to see that things were back to normal. Excellent quality and service. It's our 'go-to' for sushi.

We came here for a quick lunch after a movie at the cinemas. We both love sushi so were happy to see there was a sushi restaurant in the mall. I got a lunch bento and one of the items was tuna or maguro. I've...More

Visited this establishment several times and always good things to say. Not this time. Ordered sashimi, which I am knowledgeable of how to serve & prepare, but this time not so good. The sashimi was cut in thick 'slabs' so thick that it was difficult...More
