Good flavor to the hibachi chicken teriyaki but the pieces of chicken and vegetable are not cut small enough, which makes it difficult to eat.

Consistently good. We do both dine-in and carry out. We live 25 miles away, but when in Portsmouth, this is our go-to place. Often times they even know what we are going to order. Highly recommend to sushi lovers.

My husband and I had the hibachi chicken and shrimp. The price wasn't bad and the soup was hot but the rest of the food wasn't hot nor was it flavorful.

This is a great place for sushi and Japanese food. I was not expecting to fine such quality Japanese food in this part of the country. I have been two times and both times were very good. I highly recommend it.

We live about a mile away and eat here often. I love the black pepper tuna, crispy red snapper, and the Sushi. I've never had anything that wasn't delicious. The atmosphere is nice and the food is presented beautifully presented!
