PRO: it is the best sushi around. Better than rockville, bethesda etc. I love some of the specials and all of the sushi is fresh. I have friends that don't eat sushi and they love the menu as well. I hear they have an amazing launch buffet, but have not been. Cons:There is always a wait and unfortunately no waiting/bar... More

The food there is very good and the food in the buffet is supplied very frequently. I suggest going at lunch time because you can try different types of sushi. However, the place is very small and sometimes you have to wait up to 30 mins for a table.

I didn't know this place before. But the quality of the lunch buffet surprised me. They have various sushi selections as well as hot entrees with a very reasonable price. I will go there whenever possible. Better to get there early.

I was surpised to wait 30+ minutes at 2 o'clock on a Saturday but took it as a good sign. It's a small restaurant and tightly packed but the food was worth the wait. Service was very fast and efficient. We all got the buffet- a steal at $13.99. There was a wide variety of delicious sushi and they kept... More

Lived in Montgomery County for 15+ years and have been everywhere from Germantown to Bethesda. This is the best sushi out there. They're known for their lunch buffet (which is great) but I really recommend ordering carry out. The atmosphere is for mass-eating, while the food is fabulous and maybe best spent in your own place. The custom rolls are... More

Awesome food, great price (only 13$ per person). Good sushi buffet and also great complements like pork, tofu and vegetables.

They have buffet for lunch. The Sushi is really good. For a fair price, you can eat as many delicious sushi as possible. They also have other dishes sells separately, the boat-ship one looks very nice. But it is a little bit huge, so bring your friends together to enjoy it. We went there several times for good sushi, but... More

And that's the problem. The sushi and other Japanese dishes are all of excellent quality, and the prices are quite reasonable. Presentation, of course, is spectacular. Put it all together and it spells w-a-i-t. Even at lunch, you can expect a 15 - 20 minute wait unless you get there early. But is it worth it? Oh, yeah.

We go for the buffet but have really enjoyed the regular sushi a lot. Good prices too. Gets very busy at lunchtime.
