Good food but a slow kitchen make for consistent frustration--even when the restaurant is not crowded. If management could somehow lasso this Achilles heel, the restaurant would be so much better. Love the sesame beef and the shrimp tempora. Friends feast on the sushi.

We made a last-minute switch on dinner plans and stopped in, hoping that our meal would be as pleasant as one a few months earlier - we weren't disappointed.
Our server was friendly, helpful in sorting out some menu choices and added to a very relaxed and worthwhile experience. Most satisfying were the sushi one of us ordered, the very fairly priced bottle of wine that was perfectly chilled, the tempura veggies in a dinner and a beautifully created salad that featured avocado slices and shrimp partnered with a savory creamy dressing. A cheesecake/ice cream creation for dessert wickedly topped off the meal. Fun all the way around and we never felt rushed to enjoy ourselves at our own pace.

we went on wed. and found out that sushi was half price on wed. was not told until we got check. we ordered mexican maki and it was good if a little skimpy on the shrimp. the room is a little dowdy and has not been remodeled in many years or since it opened. the waitress did not understand our order and brought things in the wrong order. also i noticed that her finger was in my salad and my husbands meal. it took too long to get our food after ordering. the food was adequate and the plates were full. i do not think i will return as there are better japanese restaurants in our area.

The food is always good & plentiful. Ray puts on a great show at the table. Well worth the drive from Elyria.
