The place is a little worn, but Mr. Lee the sushi master always has awesome sushi. I have eating at Mr. Lee's sushi bar for 30 years and keep going back for more.

Love this place! great food, variety of dishes including japanese, chinese and vietnamese BBQ where you cook off your table. The place needs a bit of renovation but other than that foo is great. Love to use the private room with paper doors like in Japan.

They seated our group in private room. They brought us hot towels to clean our hands. Then they brought all of us four shared appetizer dishes at no charge. Then out main courses and drinks. It was the best Japanese Dinner and service we have ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant. Address is actually - 31246 Pacific Highway South

On every visit, it seems Mr. Lee is working behind the sushi bar, creating delicious sushi and sashimi and always greeting customers as they arrive and acknowledging regulars, of which there are many. Also very attentive to regulars is who I think is his wife? In any event, the service and food here is GREAT! A wonderful selection of all... More
