Least favorite of the Japanese restaurants I've ever visited. Fried rice was more like Mexican rice. Yuck. Edamame was cold. Sushi was mediocre. Excellent service and atmosphere. Vegetable tempura was good but didn't like the odd tasting dipping sauce.

Excellent teriyaki shrimp! Shrimp shumai and crab puffs also pretty darn good. Udon soup also good but would have been better with an egg added. Would definitely be back!

We decided to stop here on our way out of town and I'm happy we did. The service was quick and the food was awesome. The price was great too. The only negative is we didn't try it sooner we probably would have eaten here more!

We had an excellent dinner there! People at our hot table were also great! Would go back again! We are from Toronto, Ontario Canada and it was lovely to be in a quiet place for dinner. Loved the atmosphere!

The food was good, our waiter was excellent, but the service from the kitchen was very slow. There was only one waiter. Another staff was seated at a computer.

We ate here several years ago (in their old location) and enjoyed it. We tried it again and it was still great. Good standard nigiri. The rolls were excellent. Our friends who live on Padre and are not sushi lovers ordered from their extensive menu and were happy. The staff and owner are quite friendly. This is a good choice... More

Inadequate service staff. One waiter to serve lunch crowd. Luckily we arrived early and got our order in. We watched people from at least 3 tables leave after waiting for service. Not fault of poor guy trying to handle it. A management problem. Unfortunately, the food was not that good. Good variety of dishes representing several countries. Flavor lacking in... More

The food was great! We ordered the California sushi, one with sesame seeds and one without. It was very good and the service was great too!

Ha my son loves this place and we have been calling it "the fire meat" store since his first visit 5+ yrs ago. We eat here multiple times per month. Good sushi, habachi... everything. Always a hit.
