We always drive one hour away for their sushi. We have tried every sushi bar around, yet this is the best. You can’t go wrong with what ever you order. Great and talented chiefs.

I really like the lunch menu here. You get plenty of food and it is all very good whether you get a meal or just a roll or two. I like lunch here since the price is more reasonable

Great sushi and bento boxes. Teriyaki was a hit too. Good value for money. Just south of I10 on Hwy 49, so worth 10 min the drive if you are shopping at the Premium Outlets.
