If you have a group of people for lunch or dinner, this is the place to go. They will be able to place tables together. The food is good. However, I wasn't impressed with the Sushi. It was bland to me.

Wonderful friendly staff! We like the tempura and teriyaki chicken. The kids love the miso soup and ca rolls.

Came here with a bunch of family. The service was fantastic, the waitress was very friendly and patient with us. She also had no problem explaining items on the menu. We ordered a varoety of sushi dishes both cooked and raw and was impressed with both. There wasnt a single item we were unimpressed with, from the teriyaki chicken to... More

Outstanding! I went there based on previous reviews I read on here and was not the least disappointed. Since I was on a business trip, I was dining alone. As soon as I entered, I was warmly greeted and I had a seat at the sushi bar. After looking over the huge selection of rolls and other sushi, the owner... More

My husband and I go here at least once a week. We bring our children there as well. I always get the Ahi Poke, and he always changes up his rolls. Place is very reasonable, and the girls are always sweet!

Stopped for lunch. Friendly and helpful wait staff. Nice variety of menu choices. Half price rolls for lunch. Dimly lit and casual atmosphere. Rolls were creative but average in quality. The edamame was a bit mushy but the flavor was OK.

We just happened upon this restaurant. What a great find. We've missed out all this time. They have a very large menu. Atmosphere is good, nice place. Twice in one week. Very yummy.

Just left Chikara's after a most disappointing dining experience. I was there with my family and two foreign exchange students. This food was very good. While we were there, a party of about 8 was seated behind us. Most of this party were very intoxicated. One stumbled and nearly fell on a table. The rest were all very loud using... More

I am a sushi snob but am not putting in this review to show how much I know. Rather, I want to help other sushi aficionados to steat clear. This is a Korean style sushi place. They do not stock high quality sushi fish. If you are like most of fat, dumb Americans, then you will love the over-sauced rolls... More
