I have been in this place numerous times , I like to come and sit at the patio by the pond and have some sushi and sake, the salads are also great. Our service here has always been good and the ambiance good and casual.More

Great service. Delicious food. Would have loved to have tried more of the sushi bar. Cool atmosphere. I had never eaten there before and the waitress was more than helpful with her suggestions. Would certainly eat there again.More
