This place seemed super popular. Cars lined around the lot to find parking. Tons of people waiting to be seated, even on a Tuesday afternoon. But our wait time to be seated was maybe 5 minutes, so they certainly turn the tables quickly. Once you’re...More

The food was good. The sushi was delicious. The hibachi left a lot to be desired as did the actual Chinese food. The cinnamon bread was great. It’s hit or miss with the flavor but for the most part really good. Until the end. I...More

The food is OK. My stomach wasn't right for two days following. I tried little of most everything and the taste could be a whole lot better.

I was very disappointed this time, both with the sushi bar and the hot foods. The restaurant was not at all busy! I usually go for the cooked sushi, it has been marvelous in the past. The choices the evening we went were sparse!

Google the restaurant and it should tell you, or call them. I ate there and it was not over the weekend, so no idea.

I think lunch is around eight dollars...dinner closer to twelve. It gets strong mixed reviews-- folks love it or hate it. I found the food just mediocre. The service was poor. If you go, I hope the experience is wonderful... More
