The best thing here is their lunch combos. For $8.50 plus tax, I can order a 2 maki combo that comes with 2 sushi rolls (~6 rolls each), a salad, and miso soup. Sometimes I would also get their Chicken Teriyaki combo which comes with...More

The sushi was very yummy and the pricing was great! For 3 sushi rolls it only cost $12 with the lunch special. The one down side was the place was a little small and very cramped.

We expected good sushi with great service (as we usually encounter in the US) and got great sushi with merely good service. The place is nothing special, but the sushi creations are really good and reasonably priced. For us it was just fine for a...More

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
