Stopped in for lunch and was seated at the sushi bar right away. The entire staff was very friendly and I had more rolls in no time. They were very good. The menu had a large variety, everything looked clean and well cared for and the prices were very good. Would definitely recommend trying this place.

The taste of the meats and sauces were not good, not tasty. Majority of us didn't finish our food. It's a bad sign if the best part... More

We were there 1/2 hour before closing and were reluctantly showed a table. In addition, before we were told welcome - which, BTW, never occurred - we were told... More

I love their sushi and their teriyaki and the food is consistently good. It is a good place to go when you are hungry and if you are only 2 people you can eat at the sushi bar which is always interesting.

This location has always been good for fantastic Japanese food. It is very reasonable and your family can enjoy good food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and you will never walk away hungry.

This saddens me to see a place which I loved so much go downhill so badly. As I previously posted Sam, Kit, and Mickey are awesome, they are what made this place a fantastic experience, and they were Katsu. It is horrible when an owner treats his employees so poorly, to take SO much from them, to take from their... More
