Excellent menu and food: I liked the fact that they take the time and effort to make there dishes with there own ideas in taste and presentation, Very cool! Service: Gets slow as they fill up Atmosphere: I give a four out of five, It gets quit loud at times.

Excellent menu and atmosphere. Very well presented and tasty. Chef Ken has what it takes to make your meal right. The best baked muscles I've had. This spot is programmed into my Garmin.

The food is Delicious, the service is great each time we go there. What more can I say? It's small, quaint, and I feel they make most everything from scratch. At least try the place once if you're into Japan food.,

Good food, simply prepared, friendly service and at a very resonable price. I have lunch at this restaurant at least once a month because the quality and service are very consistent.

No pressure, great food. Sushi to teryaki chicken. Friendliest staff is always welcoming. I like coming for lunch. I've had many business lunches here.

This is the place we go for "girlfriend birthday celebrations" or just a great lunch to catch up with friends. Superior staff, clean and fantastic food. Have loved this place for years.

I was checking in late to a nearby hotel and needed a sushi fix. The hotel guy recomended this place so i walked over and was NOT disappointed. It was late, almost 10pm, so I got my food to go.
