Cleanliness could be improved. Water could be filtered. Decor is uninspiring. Mediocre food. Service is ok. Location could make this place a desirable venue, in the meantime it is mediocre.

The sushi was very fresh and a good value, I would definitely go back to this restaurant for an affordable meal. The location is a bit strange but dont be deterred, go in, its worth it!

I ordered delivery from them, and it took nearly 2 hours to arrive. I had to call and inquire where my food was three times. When the food finally arrived, it was not that good. The sushi rolls were ok, not great but not awful....More
