We did not like the offerings for dinner here. It got better scores on foursquare and UrbanSpoon that the chinese restaurant next to it, but I was not a real fan of it. The Volcano roll was not very good and bland. I know my sushi and my rolls, and this did not come close to what I am used... More

We stopped in for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the amazing service. Shelby greeted us promptly, asked if we needed help with the menu and even had recommendations for us. She was delightful! Then she surprised us by bringing out a complimentary order of crab wontons, which were delicious. I ordered two rolls and my friend had a combination... More

This is my favorite place to go before I hit a movie while in Provo. It's a shame that the sushi restaurant where I live is so bad I have to drive away from it to get to a great sushi restaurant like this place. The chefs are personable & the staff is always accommodating with a smile, and I... More

This is a more upscale than most sushi houses, and is not an all-you-can-eat. They treat you with great service, and pride themselves on the quality of their ingredients. I've been here for lunch many times with colleagues and clients.

Happy to come here with friends. We had a half price sushi coupon so made it more affordable. Everything we are was good. The calamari was delicious too. Would love to come again.

The sushi I had was really awful. I was in town for a few days and in the mood for sushi. Service was slow, but that would have been forgivable if the sushi were decent. The rice was gloppy and rubbery, and the rolls I had were almost entirely rice with very little of other ingredients. I would definitely not... More

I went here on a date a while back. The sushi was fresh and quite tasty but the pricing was a little much. Good food though.
