I met my friend at this restaurant because ever since she introduced me to their bacon fried rice, I can't get enough of it. I've only ever eaten in the bar and had this dish so my experience is limited. Unfortunately, this time the service was not so good. The bartender couldn't seem to get our order correct (which was...

We went on a Monday evening and the place was packed. We were lucky that we had reservations ( 5 people). It was early , 6pm. The hospitality was great. The server kept coming to our station to make sure that we had everything we wanted. The fried rice is excellent! For appetizer we had the sushi roll 9-1-1. Beautiful... More

We had regular dinning, Waited an hour in the bar, then waited over an hour after we ordered. Food servings were small, sushi was not up to par. Sushi rolls had ginger juice soaked in, ruined it for my wife. Not really worth the $85 for two and getting poor service and even poorer food. Sum it up, not going... More

We had a great dinner with friends, the food was great but the service was a little slow. I had to flag down the waiter two different times for drink refills.

I've been to a few sushi joints in town but this is my favorite. Good portions, decent price and friendly staff. I like sitting at the sushi bar and letting the chefs make me anything they want, based on what I like of course. I highly recommend this place. James is my favorite sushi chef. He rocks!

I have been 3 time in Fresno and always eat there. The place is located in the north suburbs of Fresno, it is large and always busy. I suggest reservations even if you eat at the bar. It has also a teppanyaki section, which I didn't try. I go there for the sushi/sashimi which is as innovative as I have... More

I really enjoy the variety of sushi rolls they have here. Often we challenge the sushi chefs to create something and we are never disappointed. I am never disappointed here. I am very particular with my sushi and find those that have been around a long time are here for a reason.

Happened to be back in town and friend took us there. It was just as great as the first time. It was also busy. Wait was not bad for no reservations and they were really nice trying to accommodate us. I would get a reservation (both times it was very busy) if you have the time but be sure to... More

My relatives like to take us to Sakura Chaya when we come for our visits. On a Saturday night, the place was very busy with people lined up in the bar. The wait staff was efficient, attentive and friendly. We did not wait long for water and the drink order. All the food looked and tasted good. I had the... More
