Yummiest sushi

Love this place! My husband and I go here about once this week. It is always delicious. No exception. My son loves their miso soup. We always ask for extra tofu and they are very generous. Love this place. Also, the staff is very friendly. Fannie walks around with out little one so that we can... read more

We have typically eaten here as dine in customers. We did take out this time. The lettuce on the salad was completely wilted and inedible. Our tuna rolls had brown edges and made us wonder of the tuna was bad. I think because we wouldn't see the food until we got home we didn't get the freshest and best quality.... More

This was by far the worst sushi place. They have unlimited sushi and quality of fish is just the worst. Maguro (Tuna) looked so brownish so I asked is this OK to the water and he said this is the normal color of Bluefin tuna and we are lucky we got bluefin. I am 100% Japanese and had BEST quality...

We've eaten here perhaps ten times, maybe more. Yesterday my wife and I took a friend for the $22.95 "all you could eat Sushi". My friend and I had the all you could eat and my wife ordered al a carte. It was good, nothing spectacular, but this is Norwich. What is irritating is the wait staff are too quick... More

I've had better. The food was average. The tempura vegetables were pretty good. Our waitress seemed like she'd rather be doing anything than waiting on us. I asked for hot tea and got a tall cylinder type cup that was so hot you couldn't even pick it up. The tea had no taste what-so-ever. It was just a cup of... More

This place was ok...we were seated quickly, but rushed to order by our very cold waitress. The food wasn't bad, but I've definitely had better. Green Dragon roll nearly made me vomit honestly. Very generic...nothing special. If you're not used to fantastic sushi, then this place is great...but if you're used to fantastic sushi and sashimi, then look elsewhere...its ordinary... More

If you're familiar with Japanese food you'll be fine. They don't ask you if you need help deciding or make any suggestions. Very impersonal staff, abrupt is a better word. We had some cooked appetizers, they were delicious. Spring rolls and Age Tofu. Then we had a Dragon Roll, very good and a lovely presentation. Then we shared a sushi... More

Personal favorites are the Philadelphia, Ninja, Gozilla & M16 rolls. Love this place and to think I almost wrote it off simply based on its location. This restaurant really is in an unsavory location in Norwich, its off the side of a not so nice Shop Rite store next to some low income apartments and the parking lot usually smells... More
