Been here before. I liked it then. Two of us went for lunch today and we were not disappointed. We had the bento-lunch (miso soup, sushi and spicy tuna roll), along with a dragon roll. Although the bento and dragon roll were delicious, the miso was pretty watery and tasteless. Service was great again. We'll be back!

First, my diet Coke arrived in a lipstick smeared dirty glass. The second diet Coke tasted funny; the third was ok. I ordered the Sea Bass...yuck. Strong fishy taste and smell. So happy I didn't order sushi. Server asked if I wanted something in its place..decided on chicken. She asked if I wanted to eat it there or take it... More

Had the worst ramen ever! Do not order this. Beware. If you like unjapanese designer sushi rolls. This unjapanese owned restaurant is probably for you.

My wife and I take this restaurant in occationally for lunch on a Saturday. We like to sit at the counter to watch the sushi chefs work their magic with their knives and the fish. They are engaging and extremely talentedl It is very fun to watch the cutting! Our favorite is the Bento Box. It's a lunch size sampler... More

We made a reservation for 12 to celebrate Grandmother's birthday. The service was excellent, very attentive to our needs and friendly to our young children. The food was very good, especially the rack of lamb and sushi dishes. They also provided a complimentary dessert, took a picture of the group and gave it to grandmother (framed). In addition they allowed... More

Bento box is delicious! The ambiance itself is a little dull for a Japanese restaurant, a little on the crowded side as the tables are Farley close to each other and if you don't mind sharing your conversation with complete strangers the food makes up for it.

Dinner great. Lunch Bento box great. Sashimi was crazy good. Atmospere light and peaceful. Our bill for 3 people was less than what we paid at the cheesecake factory for 2 people and we didn't wait for a table. Go with friends or go alone, this place is AMAZING & AUTHENTIC.

The restaurant is in a building that looks like it was a diner from the outside and is located near a Sizzler. The chef all greet you when you enter, which is nice. The service was really good. I sat at the sushi bar and was greeted by a chef behind the counter who was polite and helped me decide... More

Reasonable price for thick and big pieces of sushi meat. They have wide range of choices for Japanese food. We have been there four times this year although we drive across two city to reach the resturaunt. Sushi lover should try this place.

I've been checking this place out over the past few months and finally got the opportunity to have a meal here. Easy to find and great parking. I arrived just as they were opening at 5pm for really late lunch/early dinner so we were seated right away. The interior is nicely decorated and spacious. It's a pretty large place. The... More
