Went with my husband and our toddler. We're strict vegetarians and I must say, while the menu doesn't have many choices, the staff and chef made sure we were satisfied. The best was the veggie fried rice and mixed veggies in a garlic sauce. Not on the menu but should be added! The noodles were ok, and the aged tofu... More

We walked right in and were seated right away on a Saturday night. The staff was very courteous. The sushi was great and very reasonably priced. We... More

I eat a lot of sushi in a lot places.... And unfortunately I would have to rate the sushi here as perhaps the worst I have had... I found it so unappetizing I had two pieces and left the rest of the plate for it to go back to the kitchen. However, two others at our table had the churasco... More

The place is little and a little pricey, but the chef was very funny, especially with the children. The food quality is very good.
