This is by far the best Japanese food in town! I am obsessed with their ginger salad dressing. It's the best I've ever had. I get the hibachi chicken teriyaki every single time. It's really that amazing. Especially topped with their delicious yum yum sauce. I've never gotten a plate of sushi there that I didn't like. Their food has... More

There is NO way the food I was served was fresh. I can tell the diffrence in food that is reheated!! My chicken had a 'leftover' taste and my veggies had no color and were soggy. I could not eat it. I got a doggy bag and left. Maybe that's just what they serve for Sat lunch... Service was good... More

The udon noodle soup with seafood was superb - the best I've had since a trip to Japan. This establishment offers a wide variety of sushi, and what we ordered was very good. In fact, the menu is extensive and includes tempura, both vegetable and seafood. The restaurant is fairly small, located in a strip shopping center in front of... More

Tried this place for the first time. Great tasting food and great service at a much lower price than the amateurish hibachi restaurants Owensboro has to offer. Service was friendly and attentive. Have not yet tried sushi, but server said come back and give it a try and she would help in making "rookie" decisions. Will go back and give... More

I don't eat sushi but people I have dined with seem to enjoy what they get. I have been very pleased when I order steak, veggies, rice and noodles. A good place to eat, especially when you don't have to deal with the grill. The new seating area to the left where they expanded is really nice.

My wife and I stopped by to get our daughter some sushi and they advertise half off the price so we went ahead and got three rolls. Just little over nine dollars and was very good.

If you haven't been to this gem of a Japanese restaurant located in front of the Wal-Mart on Frederica (in the old Subway), you must try it! The food is fresh and delicious, every server is personable and attentive, and the prices are very reasonable! I love their hibachi chicken, and even though I used to not be a sushi... More

Went here on client's recommendation. Was very pleased. Ordered tuna steak, was excellent. Service very good. Definitely will be a local success story.
