This was ok, but next time I will drive across town. I like the set up if the place, but service was far from receptive (maybe being solo and getting take out). Restaurant had very strong smell of fish, but I guess that's expected since they serve sushi. This will probably be a one-timer for me.

Excellent service and the food is great! They are open late and it's just a short walk from the Marriott. Get the bento box!

I try to come here as often as I can. There is no better sushi chef than Sano. The service is prompt, the fish tastes great and he is one of the only traditional japanese sushi chefs left. If you like your sushi, you can not miss this place! He does specials midweek. Do try!!

After church one Saturday around 5:30 pm, tried going to Henry Salazar's, moderately busy, but not bad, couldn't even get a waiter or watress to even acknoweledge our being there. Waited for about 8 minutes, made a comment that this was the second evening this has happened (we normally go for lunch every weekend) and walked out. Went next door... More

Had vegetable tempura; very tasty. Other members of our party enjoyed their selections. Great value; no much atmosphere. Good location.

As a Sushi lover who eats at Japanese restaurants 2 times a week, the restaurant is not on top of my list. Service is good and decor is nice. Fish quality is average. DINNER PORTION IS HUGE.

I liked everything about this place. Sushi was above expectation for midland. Hawaiian roll was excellent choice for me. Don’t ask for Oh-my-God roll unless you believe that jalapeños are sweet…

Waited an hour and a half and had to walk out after the 4th waitress came over and said it would be 5 more minutes. Didn't offer us drinks or anything! Never going back, food was decent other times.
