My husband and I ate here for lunch and were shocked with the amount of food we got with our meal. We ordered a lunch special or something, that let us select either 2 sushi roles for $8.50, or 3 for $12.50. I wasn't sure how large the roles were, so we each went with 3. The meal also comes...

Great place for Asian fusion. Their meals are decisions, but their sushi is what keeps me coming back. In my opinion, they have the best ragoons in town.

The food was fresh and prepared well. The service was good. I may return if in the area and not willing to drive elsewhere. It does not stand out above the rest.

When this restaurant first opened up, it was great & the service was very attentive. We still order out from here for our office lunches quite often & the past six months or so, something is ALWAYS forgotten in our order & we have to go back. I don't like writing bad reviews, but it is what it is. Today... More

This little place is very handy from our house, and the sushi quality is terrific. I also like their red curry and Chinese dishes, but I find myself always wanting sushi. Beautiful presentation in a nice environment. Service usually quite good with few exceptions. Angry dragon roll is a must...

The creativity of the rolls and the preparation are second only to the service and the flavor of the creation. I eat sushi all over the place and sometimes you just find that special place where you least expect it. The bar is well stocked and the restaurant is well appointed. Very comfortable place to eat some of the most... More

Excellent experience! Good presentation, value and warm staff. The owner came to our table and visited. Every specialty roll delivered in taste and freshness. A definite pace to go back to when in Des Moines.

We had three rolls, a California, Philadelphia and a shrimp tempura, all great choices. The taste and freshness was right on point and had... More

Put simply, I ate here four times in five days because of the lack of other decent places to eat in the vicinity. And I dont necessarily like just Japanese food. Service was also very attentive.

We found this place accidentally and we try to visit often. We've never been disappointed. My husband thinks their fried rice is "the best" he's ever eaten-and he's eaten a lot of it. over the years and in various places. The staff is great; very attentive but not overly. The sushi is delicious and their lunch specials are a great... More
