The first thing we noticed when we first entered the small place (in a strip mall) was the foul odor...some stench of something rotten! But we somehow chose to overlook this fact, for we had read all the excellent ratings and were hungry for Japanese food. We ordered 5 yellowtail sushi along with other dishes (chicken teriyaki, yaki soba, chicken fried rice). We wanted to order more yellowtail sushi, only to be asked by the main waitress (maybe the manager?) to order other different sushi; "we have baby Yellowtail," but what she didn't say was that the baby yellowtail is an additional dollar more--$3.99 for 1 piece vs. $2.99 for 1 piece of the regular yellowtail....I distinctly remembered seeing that on the menu). She was pretty insistent on our getting other sushi and was vague about her explanation until she finally said, "We ran out of yellowtail." They ran out?! And it was still early in the evening! We lost our taste for the restaurant, especially after one (out of 3 men) of the sushi makers sneezed and was sniffling throughout his preparations of the sushi. We didn't see where he sneezed, but we kept a close eye on them after that. Otherwise, the chicken teriyaki was excellent tasting, and the yaki soba was good. We should have informed them about the foul smell; I don't think they were aware of it. Certainly not a quaint or luxurious restaurant if you're looking for a place with ambience and not the cleanest. Seems cramped, so not sure if it's truly wheelchair accessible. Tip: try to sit at the sushi bar if possible so as to watch them make your sushi.
