Nice friendly atmosphere, ordered a ramen which was good and some chicken karaage. I was just passing by one night in SSF and I was satisfied by choosing this place for dinner!

We were very happy with the delivery of sushi and ramen to our hotel. Highly recommend this place. No delivery charge. Nice fresh ingredients and a polite delivery man.

Their daily sushi specials are the place to start! And they have more than sushi! Great sake selection. Staff is always busy, but they manage to service the diners quite well.

I've ordered catering from this restaurant and also been onsite 5-6 times. This is the only place is SSF that has fresh sushi for catering. Much better than what Yoko's used to offer. The teriyaki trays (chicken, beef, salmon) are usually favorites to order for...More
