Sat at the sushi bar, and had rolls and nigiri. The main sushi chef is a bit of character, which can make it fun to sit there. They had a special for $10 for rolls normally 40-80% more than that. The nigiri portions were generally large, and the special rolls were also large. The regular sushi rolls are average to... More

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.

Enjoyed this restaurant. Went on Wednesday night where they have specials 3 specialty rolls for $20 which was a pretty good deal. Hibachi chef was very funny. Atmosphere was OK. Service was a little slow.

We visited this restaurant on a Thursday night. There was NO wait and we were seated immediately, which was nice. The food is just OK, compared to other Japanese restaurants in the Des Moines area. There was little to no service - the person who gave us our drinks never stopped back to see if we needed refills at all.... More

Once seated it can take a long time for orders to be processed. The last time our drink order sat on the bar for almost 15 minutes before being... More
