Fresh sushi with a great selection of specialty dishes. You can go for the traditional hibachi table but why would you? The smoked yellowtail is a must and a great presentation with the glass cover removed to reveal the "extra" smoke. Baby octopus? Yes please! Service was prompt and not obtrusive.

I am not sure this place is as good as it used to be now that the owners have changes this year. The serve the same dishes for the most part, but they are prepared differently. I still encourage folks to try it out as it is as authentic as you can find here in Jax.

I have been there twice now (April & June 2016). Excellent. Sushi is so good & quite an extensive variety to choose from. Fried rice & Gyoza are also very tasty. Full bar service. I have not eaten off the Hibachi menu, though. Owner (Al) is genuinely proud of this establishment. Authentic Japanese food. He really makes an extra effort... More

This place looks a bit sketchy and dark, but the service and the food are always good. We take our boys here for their choice to eat out.

I agree with a prior review that the outside looks ok, and the inside looks a bit run down, but I went on a date and we set at the sushi bar. We ordered drinks and a few sushi rolls to share and the sushi staff accidentally made us the wrong roll, however, this was excellent because they let us... More

The outside of the restaurant looks fine, but the inside is a little seedy. That does not always indicate the quality of the food and staff, however, so I remained hopeful. Once inside, I was seated and ordered the katsudon (one of my favorite dishes) and a spicy tuna roll. While waiting for my food, the staff was a bit... More

This is off the beaten path in a neighborhood. It is authentic Japanese. They have Japanese Hot Pot...yes, the real thing. yYu must order 24 hours in advance. And oh wow....food Jax hasn't seen! The sushi is fresh and not your typical run of the mill fish. The presentation is not wow like other local places, but that shouldn't be... More
