This is not a fancy restaurant but the wait is short and their hibachi grill is very good, you have the option to take a regular table and get smaller portions and a wider variety and save some money. Consider trying their volcano sushi. Most the dishes I tried were good or very good. By skipping... read more

They add tip to everyone's bill no matter the number of people. The soup and salad was nasty the rest of food was ok.

Must try: Sunrise/Sunset/LSU/Volcano rolls Filet & Kobe Beef Hibachi are THE BEST!! Depends on what time & day you go, the wait can be horrible. But the food is so worth the wait!! My daughter has selected this restaurant for the past 7 years for her birthday meal. The staff are very friendly & attentive!! Definitely the best Japanese restaurant... More

Be prepared to potentially wait a little while to be seated as this place is always packed....but it's that always a good sign a place is loved by many? :-) What's not to love?

All of the sushi that I tried in this restaurant was high quality. Considering last yet has a large amount of sushi restaurants this one stands out because the hibachi is as good if not better. My favorite roles are the Saints roll and the Scooby Doo roll!

I was unaware this was a primary sushi establishment but the restaurant does offer non sushi dishes. I ordered some noodle dish with beef and it came with more veggies, meat than noodles and my appetizers never came. The servers were excellent and overall feel of the place was great.

Some co-workers took me to Shinto for lunch. We each ordered the lunch box special. I can eat a lot of food, but there was no way I could finish all of this! For $11.98, you can't beat this special. Oh, and it tasted great too! Must hit this place up once or twice a month for sure.

......went for sushi and tempura for lunch. Caterpillar Roll was presented in a very creative manner.....was tasty, fresh was everything we desired. The lunch special of Tempura and Teriyaki was enough for two....reasonably priced (albeit more than price on West Coast of Canada) but a great break from the Cajun and BBQ that predominates......

The sushi served here was very good. The cleanliness was less than desirable. The floors were sweating from the humidity and very slippery. We witnessed the bus boy cleaning the tables with the same napkins that are folded on the tables and windex as the cleaner. At on point, he dropped the napkin on the floor, picked it up, and...

This was a terribly dirty restaurant. We ordered sushi and and hibachi and all of the food was terrible. Overall a wasted dining experience.
