Family members have been frequenting this restaurant for years, and we just can’t understand why. The sushi is fresh, but nothing special. The salads are bland. The tempura also pretty tasteless. And no matter when we are there or how many tables are empty, the...More

The place is nice, the service a bit slow but capable; delivered all orders as requested. While the sashimi was overall fresh and well presented, the portions we relatively small in relation to the price. We ordered agedshi tofu... It tasted very bland. The crab...More

Really good sushi - in fact the best in the Burlingame/SM area. However, it is expensive. 5-piece California roll is $8... so you get an idea of what the good stuff is going to cost. Parking is an issue for quick take-out.

Good food, good ambiance, the rice is exceptional and the fish very fresh. Not a 5 star because of the cleanliness of the place.

Fantastic sushi, and I really want to want to come back, but the service was just shy of rude (we were a group of five, with no reservation, at 5:30p--only one other party of two in the restaurant when we arrived). The rest of the...More
