Restaurant is split into two seating areas for Sushi and Hibachi. Went to Hibachi side which was entertaining, also ordered a plate of Sushi from the other side.

The sushi is very consistent. Mondays and Tuesdays their special rolls are $10. Which makes it very affordable. Top five sushi in Des Moines area.

On Tuesday evenings their "Special Rolls" are only $10 and martinis are $5. At that price it's fun to try out new flavors. Try the "Amazing" roll and the Lemon Drop Martini.

Excellent experience, the entertainment value was average but the food was terrific. We were there on a Monday night so there was only one chef on staff.
