I am always in search of authentic fresh Japanese food. So grateful to find it close by. It s nothing fancy and doesn't need to be. Owner is from Japan and service is great. Food is authentic and sushi is great!

We come all the way from Avon just to eat here. It is the best sushi in the area hands down. The waitresses are always nice and get you whatever you ask for. The food is always fresh and yummy. There is limited seating though so call before you go just to make sure you can get a seat.

Crazy, right? My wife piece was all like 'let's get some sushi' and I'm all like 'the frozen blue drink from the gas station?' and she's all 'no, fool, raw fish!' 'whhhaaat?'

However, it is an outstanding place to eat. The menu is very diverse, and it includes sushi, noodle dishes, salads, etc. I ordered a 16 ounce Sapporo beer to... More
