Great place for lunch - many choices. The service is very good and the food is outstanding. One of my favorite place for sushi and other Japanese dishes.

Sushi, dumplings and sukiyaki are really great. Definitely a good place to bring some friends for dinner.

It was our wedding anniversary and we made reservations. I ate sushi my wife had the noodles with clams. She got sick all night. I called to complain and told them to check the quality of the food. They took my phone number and never got back to me to apologize.

We have been coming here for years and, have for the most part, really enjoyed the food. However, this is a small restaurant which should, in my estimation, know it's loyal patrons. It does not. Every time we come, they seem not to recognize us, which is a turn-off considering that we come as frequently as every week or two.... More

There aren't many sushi places in Lexington, this one was okay. Over priced for what you are getting, but it is fresh. Service was good. Very clean inside.

Food quality is fine but portions are small and pricey. Strange chemistry among servers, not a comfortable environment and always a sense of being rushed

Daikanyama came back from it's renovation ready to wow, and it has. The dining room is beautiful, though it can be a bit loud when it's really busy. But, where they really shine is in the presentation of the food. Everything is artfully laid out - but not in a fussy way, if that makes sense. Everything arrives at the... More

The fish is VERY fresh, the menu is creative, and the food is always good. Sometimes the service is a bit slow (in comparison to other similar restaurants), but that is because they seem to be very busy all the time. I also notice with each visit (I have been here three times) other customers who are regulars (I can... More
