Game On for Sushi!

I had a business meeting with a pharma rep and she suggested this out of the way place because we both love sushi. it's Just Right For SUSHI! It's a small restaurant in a strip mall that DOESN'T take reservations and will get busy beyond belief so get there early! The interior is very plain but... read more

Great non-chain environment with really good sushi! It's a small restaurant in a strip mall, very unassuming but good service and God food!

When our grandson visits he wants Sushi so we were happy to find this restaurant in our neighborhood. We have been there several times and as I didn't like the idea of Sushi I could find something else to eat (that was cooked) but I have to say now that I really enjoyed all the bites they would give me...

Fantastic little restaurant! It doesn't look like much, sitting in a little strip mall next to a gas station... But there's a lot of wow in the food! It's very reasonably priced and really good! My best tip is to go early! The seat in is very limited, and there's no bar or lobby to wait for a table, which... More

Great little sushi restaurant on the south west side of the metro area. I was never found of sushi until we started dining here. The menu is filled with Hawaiian flair. The Big Kahuna Burger is great, the fish tacos are amazing and I never knew teriyaki could be so good.

We had the garlic chicken and short ribs for dinner. Both were excellent. I'm anxious to try other entrees. Service was great.

This place was recommended for sushi and they also have Hawaiian dishes. I never thought to look for Hawaiian restaurants in Denver much less near Littleton but it was so awesome to see that this place exists. I would recommend making the spicy chicken a little more spicier as well as the spicy tuna but I like things real spicy... More

The sushi is good, but as,my daughter said, this place makes real da kine Hawaii grinds. I don't even like mac salad, but I ate every bit of it. The tempura is light and not oily, and the kalbi ribs, taste just as they should. The owner is friendly but quirky, one thing he does, and he does have a... More
