Attended a after work "Cyber Zen" social after work. Everyone enjoyed their food. The restaurant has a covered outside area and inside dining. The staff was very pleasant and service was quick. Highly recommend.

Once again I relied on staff knowing I wanted sushi. If I hadn't I would have missed a sun roll on the entree menu that was absolutely amazing and beautiful at the same time! Well done. The atmosphere is fun and energetic.
