Good service and the food comes out on little boats.

Loved it. I go about every month. The ambience is excellent. The sushi comes out on little boats and the workers are quite friendly.

These is a busy place. Expect 15 to 20 minutes wait. small place, but the service is super fas, so if you are not in a hurry is worth the waiting.

There is no doubt that you're going to have to wait to get a table but it is so worth it! Restaurant itself is really small and there is a Moet with sushi boats floating by! You can grab whatever rolls by and than you stack your plate and they charge you by how many plates you've accumulated. Really cheap... More

So this whole in the wall "floating boat" Sushi restaurant is simply bizarre. Bizarre that they offer reasonable quality food at such cheap prices. Bizarre that people wait so long and queue the way that they do. Bizarre that they have not been refurbished by legislation. However its popularity is well deserved, and the wait times and abruptness of the... More

Visiting from Toronto and my son's 11th birthday and he wanted sushi served on a conveyor belt style. The Restaurant is a little hard to find since the restaurant offers no name on the walls or doors. We used the street address and visual clues that it was Japanese restaurant. Restaurant opened at 6PM and we arrived a 5:45pm with... More

Super rude owner and staff. The owner literally screamed in front of the entire restaurant at a nice young woman with her baby. It made me really uncomfortable and I decided to leave and never come back. The place was garbage anyway. When they treat customers like that that means they don't respect the business and the quality of the... More

This place was recommend to us by a local. It was a great suggestion! The restaurant is kind of poorly marked and hidden in a strip mall. It is a bit of a hole in the wall but it also has a certain charm to it. The restaurant is dominated by a u-shaped bar surrounded by a canal with tiny... More

As many have noted the "gimmick" here are the floating boats that pass by. If you've had sushi in other major cities you may have encountered this before. The main thing you need to know is 1) Arrive early! This place is small and if you are not there when the doors open at 6 expect a wait. If you're... More

This is by far my favorite sushi restaurant. EVER. It is so fresh and you can watch them prepare everything right in front of you. The best part of this dinning experience is the food comes out in a "conveyor method" but as little boats hold the sushi and you grab as they go. This place is so magical and... More

Place was ratty and could use a good cleaning but the sushi was the freshest I have had outside of Japan. I observed the chef and he washed his hands often and used good technique. Sushi is served on rotating boats and you grab without knowing what it is but it does not matter...everything was good.
