Great food and drink, waiter needs to relax.

In Phx for work and play, recommended to come here by our nearby hotel. My colleague and I were warmly greeted to a busy restaurant. The table by the door wasn't a problem.

Without a doubt, the best sushi restaurant at which I've ever eaten. I live in Manhattan and eat sushi probably once a week, sometimes from great places, mostly from decent places. I crave those business trips that take me to Phoenix, because I get to experience this gem hidden in a strip mall. From the amazing presentations of sushi, to... More

My husband and I came here yesterday for lunch and we both order the Trio Hand Roll from the extensive lunch menu. For $10 we each had three hand rolls, miso and a house salad. I just don't think you can do much better for the price; too bad the rolls themselves weren't that great and were a bit tasteless.... More

This being my first time here I was very interested in the offerings - I was not disappointed. They have several menus with almost anything you can thing of - from sashimi to the big round noodle soups. I have the sashimi sampler with the tempura big noodle soup - both were excellent. Next time I will get the tempura... More

I just absolutely love this place!! - it's in a sort of strip mall so you start out thinking hmmm maybe this won't be so good then you are just wowed away by the food the cozy feel and the sort of family ambiance amongst the staff, they were all very wonderful. The food was just such a refreshing surprise... More

This place has a hit and miss with the waiters. Brian and Deon and another young girl(who i unfortunately do not no her name) are the best! The others are ok but overall get the job done. The food on the other hand is phenomenal! I have never gone unsatisfied. I once got a closed clam and they gave me... More

The sushi is always fresh and excellent; never a bad meal...the staff is always friendly including Yasu!!! Busy on Friday and Saturday nights...for the reviews complaining about the service being slow, this is not a "fast food restaurant". The best sake: Shirakabe; the Albacore Tuna creation is marvelous; the wait staff: Brian, Lexi, Dion are always excellent as well as... More

This is the best sushi I have had in AZ. Excellent, fresh, large selection, wonderful waiters, beer that is actually from Japan and NOT Canada! It gets packed early. Make a reservation.

Just came back from what WAS my favorite Sushi/Japanese restaurant in the valley. The service was god awful and the restaurant wasn't even close to capacity. Our waiter didn't have a clue as to what he was doing..............food was uneven at best..................Everyone can have an off night..........and maybe the chef was having such a night...............They seriously need to re-train their...

This place hardly needs another review but I feel compelled. Yasu is the owner and head chef. A true artist of delicious Japanese creations. This is our second time here and I can't wait to go back. My new favorite restaurant in Pheonix area but I'm partial to Sushi. We went this time on a Monday night. It was quiet... More
