After being seated, waitress took our order and salads and soup were brought immediately. Soup spoon came with the dinner but no silver ware or chopsticks. Waited and finally got attention of another waiter and he brought us napkins and forks . By then, we were eating our salads and appetizer came. Appetizer was the Godzilla Roll special. Husbands meal... More

Great Japanese restaurant with nice atmosphere. Excellent selection and variety as well as sushi bar. Nice combination plates and you receive an abundant serving of food. The homemade ginger sauce is the bomb! Usually have quick service and prices are reasonable. You will not be disappointed dining here.

Great sushi- I did all cooked rolls. Try the volcano roll. Didn't love the teriyaki steak or soup. Great service. Really liked it overall.

Romantic atmosphere in this well-maintained restaurant. Japanese food is very good. I especially recommend the Bento box as the best value. Location is not the best, but you'll forget about that as soon as you walk in the door.

Dined here three times. The combo platters are plentiful, fresh and delicious. Excellent presentation and atmosphere. Hidden away in the corner of a plaza, this was a truly awesome find. Great service and Great prices, set this establishment apart! The sushi was great too!

Do not allow reveals a bleak appearance and interior interfere. Shrimp Tempura was very tasty and well done. Salmon was good, with plenty of vegetables. Service good.
