We've eaten here 3 times and each time was different. Not consistent but food was always interesting. Not bad but different. Nice and clean and friendly staff.

The food is kept fresh, full and hot. The Sushi is good and fresh as well. Price is very reasonable. There is a fresh salad bar and hand dipped ice cream for desert. A great place for lunch and right off the freeway.
