Glad to visit this place again

My wife and I used to eat here regularly when we lived in the area, but moved nearly 8 years ago. We still have friends there though, and visit the area occasionally. On our way out of town this trip, we were craving sushi, and decided to stop back in to one of our old favorites. When we... read more

I visited this restaurant alone to eat quick dinner. I ordered Deluxe Sushi Dinner. I also drunk two bottles of beer. Sushi was below average, small portion, and nothing special. Price was right, but I wanted to eat better sushi. It cost $52 including tips. I will not be back there.

I wanted so bad to love this tiny mom and pop restaurant, close to my office. I went three times, and I was disappointed every time. First, there always was a problem with my order. They always seem to forgot one item. One time is totally understandable, but three times ? Maybe I am just unlucky.... I have always taken... More

This place is near our home and has been recommended to us by a few of our friends/family. So, today after Mass we headed just down the block for a bite of lunch. First off, you have to duck/dodge some sort of flag or banner hanging in the doorway. I mean literally hanging half way down the entrance. Okay...trying to... More

The food and atmosphere are great here. I lived in Japan for a few years and although the food is not on par with what I've had in Japan, it is very close.

This is the best place to get sushi in the greater Cincinnati area. Best fish and best price. Make sure you try the Matsuya 2 roll and the amigo role. Site at the bar and talk to Panasonic. He is a pretty interesting guy.

Enjoyed a nice sushi dinner. Young waiter was very attentive and helpful with answers to our questions. Keep in mind that you can unfortunately still smoke in Kentucky restaurants

This is a medium well kept Northern KY secret. They have a good handle on sushi, and everything is fresh and well prepared. The wait staff is very helpful and willing to educate you, or give suggestions in regards to the sushi. The seaweed salad is good, along with the miso soup. Next door to them is a Japanese grocery...
