A very good Japanese Restraunt. The waiter was very helpful in our selection of food. The fish was fresh and prepared well. If you to indulge yourself get the fried ice cream - best to share with friends and family!

Always crowded and popular. The bar offers good drinks, but the sushi selection is outstanding as was our service. Naturally the offering of fresh fish is large, presentation is very nice and taste quality is superior.

It's ok, nothing special. The ahi and spinach roll was pretty good, I'd get that again but the soft shell crab and eel roll were no bueno

Love this place, so does my 12 year old granddaughter! We went for the "early bird" special and had a very reasonably priced dinner for two ordering several sushi roles! Love ❤️❤️❤️❤️

No. But they have the typical California rolls that most kids will eat. Their menu has a great selection of food that is suitable. Not just raw fish but other options you can feed your kids. And make sure you leave room for... More
