I love authentic Japanese food but please do not give me manufactured crab and call it crab. I might expect that at a fast food restaurant; if you sell that as crab you are not worth the visit. And then the hot and sour was neither. Come on guys, you can do better. I must say that the unagi eel... More

I came here on a recommendation and I was not disappointed. I brought my girlfriend, who had never eaten sushi before. The restaurant was extremely clean. The staff who greeted us and served us were absolutely wonderful. We never had to wait until our glasses were empty for our server to notice us. She noticed is the entire time. The... More

This restaurant is my favorite ever! For a person who is not a raw fish eater, the menu has so many cooked sushi options that are awesome. Pricing is great too, my boyfriend and I can go here and have so many rolls for a full meal about 35$! That's great in our book!

I disagree with the other reviewers. The sushi here is subpar, sloppily rolled, made with cheap nori, and served with soy sauce that isn't meant for sushi, being far too salty. If you're looking for sushi and reading this now head to the city (sea bar or Kuni's) or to Depew (Kumo)! This place should step up their game.

This was an excellent lunch! I had the Chicken Teriyaki Lunch Entree which included Miso soup and white rice. The portion of chicken was a good size and it was served with plenty of vegetables. (i really liked the marachino cherry in the garnish) My daughter had two shrimp sushi at $2.25 each and the stir-fried Chicken Udon for $10.95.... More

Brought my boyfriend here to try sushi for the first time. I had never been here but definitely will go back. Service and food was excellent for a Friday night. My only negative comment is the music playing literally sounded like lullaby music. I was ready for a nap before our appetizer came.
