It was good for us

The wife and I were passing through this town and decided to stop here for lunch on a Saturday. Since this is town is on the Southern gateway to Yosemite, it seems that more than half of the restaurant participants were from out of town, so I expect that the taste and reviews of people will vary... read more

I doubt you've ever had worst sushi than this place, really. The rice wasn't even sushi rice...it was jasmine white rice with no rice vinegar added. The rolls could have been rolled by 2 year olds. Actually a 2 year old could have done better. And the presentation was non existent. Sorry people it was bad. Do yourself a favor... More

The food was as authentic as it could be. We never thought we could find sushi around in Yosemite. The owner was very friendly and the food was excellent. Definitely recommended!

Food was so-so. Nothing to write home about. Flavor was mediocre but service was good and people running the place were great, very nice.

Good authentic Japanese food prepared by Japanese couple; they mixed up our order initially as we wanted meat-free fried rice for our daughter; this was corrected wonderfully. Arigato

The restaurant was very average. Food quality and taste, service, price, value. It was okay if you are in the mood for Japanese food. Tempura plum ice cream was our best dish. The chicken the worse. Everything else was okay to good. Rice was good which is important to me when I go to a Japanese restaurant.

We really enjoyed our dinner in this family own and run restaurant. With so many chains taking over it was really nice to see a mother, father, and son working side by side. My husband and I had sushi and miso soup, and the other couple with us shared a bento box. The sushi was delicious and the bento box... More

We stopped for a quick bite and had a less than desirable experience. The rice was dry and fell apart from the over mayo'd sushi. A sushi chef should not feel comforable presenting that to anything but the trash. Our seaweed salad was served on a pile of iceberg lettuce and covered in oil. The miso soup was warm and... More
