It was a pleasant experience. The food was good and arrived in a timely manner. Nice selections. There was no one else but they were still attentive.

We eat here on a weekly basis, always have had good service, friendly staff and owners. I would highly recommend it as a local sushi joint

I found Sakezake from a Groupon purchase. They are good, and not too expensive. The tea is okay, but you get your own bag. The rolls are very good and the miso soup is also.

Wow! This place has gone down hill. If you want hot green tea be prepared for a glass of hot water and a bag of Kirkland (Costco brand) green tea that you need to make yourself. The food was horrible. The calamari was chewy and the breading was so greasy that you can taste the grease squishing in your mouth... More

First the sushi my friend and I got was terrible and the rice was under cooked. Second we bought $60 dollars worth of sushi. We used a groupon for $30 dollars. However a few days later I noticed I was charged the full $60. We called. The person who answered was very nice, I believe they were a server, and... More

Went there for lunch on a Saturday. We were only ones there. Building smelled of Pine Sol. Had to wait 15 minutes for water. Sushi took a while to get, although we found out later it was due to a issue with a fryer in the kitchen. Pretty good sushi though.

Great sushi. Been here several times with a groupon. They do limit there purchase of groupon's. FYI You can get more if you use a different email address with groupon. The salad is great. The drinks are expensive so you may want to order tea. They always are training new greeters and waiters, seams to be a revolving door of... More

Been here several times....never have to wait for a table. Service is great. Appetizers are delicious! My daughter is vegan and waiter helped her choose her meal from the menu. We all shared sushi rolls and enjoyed trying each one.

My husband and I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant. Good: Nice décor, clean ladies room, pleasant atmosphere, and appetizing presentation of sushi & kitchen entrees. Sushi was tasty and fresh. We had Seared Kamikaze (spicy & delicious) and Tamago (good ratio of egg to rice, delicious) Endamame is steamed with a tad of salt, simple but tasty. The entrees... More

I've given this restaurant three tries; After my last experience, they strike out with me. The sushi is fine but priced higher than most places. I'd be okay with that if the service weren't so poor - that's what will keep me from coming back. It took close to 15 minutes for the waiter to take my order despite my... More
