Their Happy Hour from 3-6 has really caught on in RSD. The restaurant is packed with locals who love the low-priced specials.

Oh. My. Goodness. I just left there and had the strangest experience of all time. We arrived around 9:30 pm.First off, the entire resturaunt was empty except for one other couple. We were not greeted when we entered. We were asked if our food was "for here or to go." We were then told we could sit at any table... More

Visited my folks and was craving Japanese food. I suggested my 'go-to' in San Diego (Shizuoka), but my folks wanted to take me to this place. Was not disappointed. Between my parents and me, we ordered gyoza, teriyaki steak combo w/spicy tuna roll, garlic edamame, tempura combo. Each of the meals came with salad and soup. It was ALL good.... More

Located in a small outdoor mall, parking can be challenging. We came for happy hour, but were seated immediately. We were impressed with the $2-$3-$5 happy hour menu and its selections. The place is about as crowded as most sushi places and clean. Our order came with a little delay. Food serving was generous and tasty. Our only complaint: There... More

We went with friends and ordered many items. The sushi and sashimi was just okay, average. I had the seafood soup which I did not care for. There was very little seafood in the soup. The baked mussels were excellent. The staff was preoccupied. The prices didn't fit with the atmosphere. It felt more like an all-you-can-eat joint than a... More

I only have sushi a couple of times a year. Not because I don't like it (I do!) but because my wife doesn't like it. So needless to say, I haven't been to a lot of sushi joints. However, I personally thought the sushi here was really good! Very, very flavorful, very fresh, and the dishes we had and saw... More

I frequent this place because I'm mad for Japanese food. I wouldn't say the food is outstanding, but it sure is good. I wouldn't go back again and again if I didn't like it, having lived in Tokyo for a couple of years - but this place can hold it's own compared to anything else that's out there in this... More

This place has a communication problem. The sushi bar is anything but inviting, because the guys behind it are uncommunicative and bored. The sushi freshness is uneven, maybe because they don't do enough business. There's no heart in this restaurant, and the service is unsophisticated.
