On a recent visit, we ordered 3 different rolls suggested by our server. All were very different and excellent, from unagi and maguro to sake and tako. They bring their fish in 3 times per week making a big difference in taste and texture. Kudos!

I ordered on-line and was given a time to pick up the order--when I arrived they dug the order out of a pile of orders and then turned it in to the kitchen. 30 minuites later I had some good food.

This is not a bad restaurant, nor is it an excellent restaurant. It is right in the middle. For me, the sushi was loaded with rice and overwhelmed the fish... yeah, a personal preference. Service was spotty, but everyone was nice. The food was prepared with care, but just was strong on the rice content. Would I return? Possibly.

My family went to dine at this restaurant and we were very disappointed with especially the time it took to get any food or drink what-so-ever. Not only was this a big problem but the air conditioner was making the environment extremely cold. We almost decided to walk out. After a while multiple parties arrived after us and ordered more...

We stopped for lunch before flying home. I asked for the waitresses recommendation between their special rolls, and I went with the candy cane roll. It included asparagus, and the textures and flavors were amazing. There was more than I could eat, and my friend gladly helped. Beautiful presentation.

Great service. Great food. The hibachi chef was fun and entertaining. Hana roll was okay....Crispy roll was really good. Hibachi (steak, shrimp and chicken) were perfect.

We went for lunch and ordered the Hana Roll (tempura shrimp topped tuna avocado tobiko special sauce) on soy paper and it was wonderfully delicious. The presentation was innovative and the roe sprinkled on top was just perfectly salty and 'popped' in my mouth. The gyoza was good, but not amazing and the miso soup was good, but in my... More
