We visited here twice in recent weeks. Each time, the food was superbly prepared to our liking. We ate at the hibachi section of the restaurant; you can choose to eat in the regular restaurant section and order off an extensive menu if you wish. Appetizers - Crab Rangoon in particular, were outstanding. We also had a lobster and shrimp... More

The portions were larger than you'd expect and they were very tasty. The chef put on a good show and made sure that we got what we ordered and kept the various sauces full. The service staff was fast and very friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Went to this sushi spot on a whim. Being in a strip mall, it is very easy to pass it by. But, the food, especially the sushi rivals some of the best in the area; really, fresh and tasty.

The business seems to be family owned. They always show hospitality when you come in. Have never been mistreated by any of the staff. Many of the staff seem to be new to the US, so to get attention for them to come back to your table- you may have to give them a proper nod (like in Europe). Food... More

This is one of my families favorite restaurants. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. Hibachi bar is fun but in the regular restaurant....the service is laughably HORRIBLE. the wait staff make no attempt to even pretend they want to speak English (they are not Japanese but Chinese) after they serve the meal they give you 10 minutes to...

Went last night for sushi with my wife. We shared to special and one a la cart roll. Iron chef roll was squishy and a bit bland. Shrimp tempura roll fell apart when trying to eat. Service was below average. Was later in evening (close to nine) and expected better.

The food was decent, don't eat sushi but the miso soup was great and so was the rice. Chef was good, joked around and provided entertainment but....the waitress was so rude and unfriendly it really jaded our experience. Do not think we will go there again, too many other places with better service.

Just an average place. The service was cold and not all that friendly. The food was average. The experience was not what I expected.

The salmon was fresh. The dishes were prompt and pretty authentic. The age dashi tofu was crisp and the batter was light.
