Tasty meal!

Went with a co-worker and we shared two entrees, it was the perfect amount, and delicious. We were full but did not need to leave any behind (no fridge in our hotel rooms). Would definitely recommend and go back if in the area.

My daughter was here on business from Chicago. She was craving the Sushimi salmon. I love Sushimi, Sushi, and tempura, and miso soup. We also ordered the sauteed lobster. Our waiter was a good server. The food was abysmal. Starting with the tempura which was cold, chewy and tasteless. The sushi was small, also tasteless, and stale. The miso soup... More

Ate here for lunch on a weekday coming from a conference. Place is not as busy and I believe the price of their food is to blame. Food was average and service was friendly but nothing spectacular. "Meh. I've experience better" is spot on!

I ate here over the holidays. I thought I had been eating good sushi, but this exceeded all my expectations. I have been to Japan 3 times. I have enjoyed many great meals, but I can't remember sushi that was better.

This is a very nice and pricey sushi. I do believe you get what you pay for. The sushi here is very fresh. I enjoy sitting at the sushi bar and watching them make the sushi. I have had the rainbow roll, Tuna Tataki, and various nigiri sushi and maki rolls - none of which was a disappointment. If you... More

This restaurant is okay and has a good atmosphere but there is nothing that distinguishes it from other sushi bars. It is somewhat pricey but deserves a good rating. I would go back if downtown but The Sukura on North Keystone is still my favorite.

This was the most expensive sushi I've ever eaten, but it was far far from the best. The two guys behind the sushi bar had zero personality or sense of customer service. The waitress was very friendly and had a great personality.

Beautiful rolls tended by a chef wearing a Colts ball-cap. Superbly HOT tuna rolls with roe atop! Large but cozy restaurant with fantastic waitstaff. The place was fairly unpopulated when we went but would be packed (according to locals) most nights. The night we went, the weather was wet and cold... likely kept people indoors. The menu was slightly limited... More

Decent quality fish. Too many cooked fancy rolls for non sushi eaters. Essentially good food but overpriced in my opinion. Point of fact: the service was really excellent which made up a bit. I'd give it 3.5 stars if that were possible. Bottom line: If you're here and hungry for Japanese it's better than good but don't go out of... More

I got sashimi, tempura and a fire in the roll. The sashimi tasted fresh and was served in a nice presentation. Our waiter was very friendly too. The tempura was tasty but weird that there was a tempura onion (like an onion ring)- I thought that was odd as most japanese places I go to have yams, enoki mushrooms, brocolli,... More
