We eat here often for lunch or dinner. Miso soup, salad. The teriyaki salmon. The California rolls are great. My favorite are the crispy/spicy tuna rolls. It's a great spot for lunch or dinner. It's kid-friendly. The service is superb.

Kaido is a very local restaurant. It is in a very unassuming strip mall but don't let that stop you from having a really good dinner. We had gyoza, California roll and the Special. It was a huge plate of fresh sushi of all varieties.
