Visit Osaka on occasion and must say that that the sushi is very good. They have a very wide variety of rolls and specialty sushi. A MUST TRY!

The family and I go to this place regularly. We enjoy it very much. We always get the chicken hibachi and it's always good. The staff always welcomes us in and usually gives us crayons for our son to keep him busy. They have a nice place to sit outside when it's nice and the rest of the restaurant is... More

Driven by many times without ever thinking about stopping in. Major mistake on my part as this place is a neighborhood gem. Fresh, high quality, tasty and generous portions. Staff was not imposing but helpful. Good experience and will return.

Rolls were well presented and tasted very fresh. We loved the spicy tuna and the Alaskan. My wife had the red snapper plate. I had steak hibachi. Both were great. Décor isn't perfect but was good enough to overlook.

The sushi is the best I've ever had its soooo good. Their seaweed salad is delicious and this one item I forgot the name of it but it's crab inside this shell and it's served with fire under it or something I don't know but it was good. Just because the sushi is so good I haven't tried anything else.... More

We waited 15 minutes for a server and finally I had to go ask if we can get some help. Food was dry, carrots tasted canned and server was really bad. We live very close but I would never come back.

Excellent service and dinner. My wife and I had dinner recently and were pleasantly surprised. The hibachi steak and shrimp were very good.

We love to go here for lunch during the week. They have half price rolls Mon-Sat during lunch. The Philadelphia roll is my favorite! I would definitely recommend this place to any sushi or hibachi lover!

The service was so slow and our food came out probably 40 mins after we ordered when the restaurant wasn't even busy. And of course our food was nuke warm and cold.
