For some reason, I did not expect this restaurant be really good. But it actually is. And it is not only "decently" good, but it's actually really good. Their calamari tastes great - best I've ever had!! And their beef in oyster sauce is delish!! Try the maki combo (forgot the name), too cause it's also delicious. In my 2-week... More

The food here is really good. Lately the portions have been getting smaller, but that's because they are so popular and in demand. The staff turnover is somewhat high, but everyone for the most past is really nice. The food is definitely the star attraction. Any dish you order is sure to be a hit. I have been going there...
