Service was awesome, walked in and sat down. Right away, someone came to bring a menu. They brought miso soup, which was delicious. I ordered the chicken teriyaki. I had a lot of food left over so I asked for a box to go. I'll be back, thank you!

This eatery has the best hot and spicy chicken around. It's consistently good with just the right amount of heat and not too much sauce. I always take two orders to go after we eat in and use them for lunches. My husband had a bento box and whoofed the whole thing. Friendly and attentive service puts the experience over... More

Local recommended the place and I love it. Mariner roll is a keeper. Small place but they will send you on your way with a to go order. If you like sushi and ambiance is optional, this place is BOSS!!!

The California rolls are only $5 and will fill you up for a nice lunch or light dinner side. The place is always crowded because the food is wonderful.

I wanted teriyaki for dinner and found this place close to my hotel. There was enough to eat for two meals, which saved me money for the next evening's dinner. There was an amazing number of options on their menu! I had a hard time selecting, and wished I lived closer so I could try other items. I would definitely... More

No frills location and atmosphere. Limited seating. But perfect for takeout and eating for a delicious and quick teriyaki lunch.

I LOVE this place. I visit every time I am back in Tacoma. Not only is the teriyaki outstanding, but the sushi is really good as well. And ... the service is outstanding - some of the nicest people I interact with in Tacoma restaurants, no question about it. HIGHLY recommend.

I LOVE this restaurant eating in but delivery was disappointing. The Delivery man was nice, it came quickly but the order was not so good. I ordered 2 orders of Chicken Yakisoba, Spring Rolls and the 69 Sushi Roll. The sushi was not the one I ordered, this one was very fishy smelling, had way too much mayonnaise and a... More

A super awesome delicious lunch was here. Tasty as hell, well made sushi and I would really recommend trying it. A decently large menu as well.Lots to choose from and some sushi specials as well. The restaurant is small and cramped though, and because of this there are not many tables to sit at, so the waitress is really pushy... More
