enjoyed their sushi rolls. lots of options to choose from and great taste! place was packed, a testament to the great food. didn't mind the wait, it was understandable given the volume of people eating. i observed that seats were not vacant for long; as soon as a group left the table, it will be filled up again with a...

Dine in. No take out! On a Sunday night was told our order would be ready in 30 minutes. 75 minutes later it was ready. I would suggest to plan accordingly because the food was awesome. Everything from the appetizers to the rolls to the sashimi was excellent. Will go back but will plan more time based on this experience

I have absolutely no idea why people give this place good reviews. We eat sushi everywhere we go and this, by far, was one of the worst. The fish was the same temperature as the rice and the three rolls we had all tasted the same. If we had not been with friends from the area, whose feelings we didn't... More

There were 11 family members. When we arrived, a long table was all set for us on the wall. Very busy place, lots of staff to support the customers. We ordered a variety of sushi rolls and some apps (edamame, fried green beans). EVERYTHING was delicious!!! The staff was attentive and everything was freshly made. The restaurant put the finishing... More

We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The service is pleasant and the sushi is always good. Their specialty susumu is top notch. I especially like the tuna with jalapeños, cilantro and thin lemon slices. Both the hand rolls and the specialty rolls are great too.

I wasn't really impressed by this restaurant. Although it was pretty clean inside, the service was kind of slow and the food served was not really impressive. Not much I can say about it. They should be much better since they have a lot of competition within a 2 mile radius serving the same thing.

Some friends who had never been were actually going to go to Gyu Kaku, but the wait was an hour...wth? So looking around, I spotted Kappa. My friend Joanne raved about this place and I thought what a great opportunity to try it. It was busy for a week day, and we did have to wait a while before anyone... More

Went here for dinner on a saturday night and I loved it. There were only two of us so we sat at the bar. They have a pretty decent happy hour too. We ordered the creamy mermaid as an appetizer which is like a crispy egg roll with cream cheese and shrimp then cut in half. For rolls we got... More

Tried eating in and taking to go, each time I was disappointed. Ive come here a few times over the past 6 months because it is down the street from my new house- sushi was good but location was small and felt super cramped, almost like I was on top of the people next to us. I get it, they... More

I've passed this place on several occasions but was never tempted to go inside to eat. There are a lot of choices in this strip mall so I always go to the one that I like. However, today I was curious to go and try. The service was ok. They were not friendly or introduced themselves. The miso soup was... More
