I've only tried their makis and noodle dishes as I cannot eat any raw fish. Sometimes the presentation of the makis aren't so perfect but the taste never goes wrong. Always tasty!!! Their udon and yakisoba are delicious as well.

I eat here at least once a month. The service is fabulous. The lady is always so friendly. The sushi is fresh and delicious! I would recommend the Champaign roll for first timers. You can't go wrong here!
