DEFINITE RECOMMEND. Sushi and Sashimi are as good as or better than anywhere else I've tried in town, and Robert's welcoming attitude tips the scale. Ask him for his "Magic Sauce" if it's not jammed, he'll make a little for you - a little spicy,...More

The absolute best sushi around! If you go anywhere else, you might as well buy it day old from the supermarket. Best sushi from south bend in, to California?

Pleasant staff. Decor was dated and horrific. If you know sushi, pass on this place! Globs of spicy mayo on the rolls, when it should have been a light drizzle. Oh and yes...waited over an hour for three terrible rolls.
