Service is slow because it takes time to create sushi. I am in shock by the negative comments. I have been eating here since they opened 11 years ago. Amazing service, fabulous atmosphere and the best sushi money can buy!!!

It all seems so fresh. Love the seaweed salad and the various sushi rolls. Fried Shrimp and Fried Softshell rolls are our favorite.

Wonderful sushi and squid salad! Prices are very reasonable also. Plain atmosphere with little decor and service is good. Not the surroundings of say Stix but the food is very good. You are there to eat though right? :)

Our sushi was fine, but there were only 2 people working and the place was packed. I totally understand that 2 people can only do so much, but our experience was not... More
