Yes, sports bar meets great sushi.... in a strip mall! don't let the exterior, location, or décor turn you away. The sushi was fresh and plentiful and the service great.

I have been here numerous times and have always had a good meal. Sometimes I have had the Dinner for two special and always take stuff home or have done simply a normal order. Food is always hot and delicious.

I always go to this restaurant when outlet shopping in Gilroy. It is not affiliated with the outlets, but is in the building next door to the outlet building 4 which houses the Gap. The restaurant has a variety of Thai and Chinese dishes which are flavorful and reasonably priced. I had the basil chicken and my sister had some... More

Driving through Gilroy this week on route to Paso Robles, my friends and I stopped for lunch midway. We found this gem and decided to give it a try. A great lunch. Busy place, comfortable surroundings, and large portions. The three of us split an order of potstickers, and two different lunch entrees with steamed rice. More than enough. And....the... More

This place is alway consistently good. Tonight was over the top good. The service is always friendly. Two of us shared the dim sum appetizer, a large rice, each of us had one item off the menu and each had one cocktail and the bill came to $80. Seems a little steep but everything was cooked perfectly. I guess I... More
