We were all kind of disappointed....3 families met for an early supper (4:30 PM) Two of the children, ages 9 and 11 were super excited about the anticipated fun that usually goes on at a restaurant known for it's presentation. Unfortunately the presentation NEVER happened. The food was OK but nothing special....asked for steak to be cooked med. rare but... More

We had a good lunch in a restaurant that has the potential to be so much more. A restaurant in need of remodeling and much more light can step forward "in the future " to be a much better experience. The food was fine, the experience was less. It is not necessarily a "place to go". IHG, Rube

Service was good and prompt. We got refills without waiting. Sushi is very good but the menu does not explain what ingredients are in the rolls. I had no surprise ingredients except to have lettuce in the shrimp tempura roll. The Eel roll was my favorite. We were there on a Thur around 11:30 and it did take time to... More

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. Only downside was the waitress who was not engaging at all and a little short with us. That just tempered the whole mood unfortunately. Prices were a little higher than expected for... More

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.
