Authentic Japanese

It's been a while but I have visited this restaurant several times in the past and certainly wish I could visit again. Authentic, tasty, friendly people. What else do you need?

I ordered their 'maki special' which offers three maki rolls for $9! I had two salmon and a tuna one and they were good. I asked for some roe on the inside and they happily added it at no charge. Same special offered additional choices with California roll or I think a cucumber roll too. Either way 18 pieces for... More

Honestly it doesn't get better than this. Kind whole hearted people own the place. Its small in size but the food is LARGE in flavor. Best Food Ever. Make sure you get the sushi, it is the best you will have

sushi was good but one person is the server and service is slow. Reasonable prices but they need to hire some more people and improve service. This seems to be a theme in Palm Coast where they don't expect a crowd and the people serving are not trained.

We've eaten here twice in the past month - once for lunch and the next time for dinner. Both times the food was great. The chicken curry had just the right amount of spice and the sushi was excellent - especially the eel and tuna.

The restaurant is unpretentious and clean. The food is excellent and consistent. It is a neighborhood restaurant ran by a group with a hospitality heart. A gem! The closest thing that you will find to a "corner restaurant" in the city. Regular patrons will return again and again for the food and the warm friendly treatment.

This is definitely the best sushi & tempura anywhere. Over 10 new items were recently added to the menu. The "Mayo Hotate" is my new favorite. This is a must go to place.

After living here for 7 years we can't believe the wonderful food we've been missing by not knowing about AI Japanese Restaurant. We have passed this great restaurant which is in St. Joes Plaza off of Palm Coast Parkway a million times without thinking about checking it out. This was mainly because a lot of the store fronts there are... More
