My family and I have frequented this restaurant ever since it opened and it has never disappointed. Delicious sushi and excellent, personable service. Highly recommended.

I visit here regularly and am never disappointed. Sushi is always fresh, nice variety of specialty rolls.

We like this place as a family for a good dependable sushi. We have been there multiple times over the last couple of months for lunch and had a very good experience every time. Their lunch combos are very good and filling.

This place always has great sushi. The prices are affordable and the wait staff is extremely attentive. I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed, either for lunch or dinner. The sashimi platter is a little expensive for what you get, but the fish is always fresh and the presentation nice.

Despite telling them about allergies (and we get vegetarian sushi- with avocado cucumber etc) they put the whole order in one box- with the mayo dressing- so one of my kids who is allergic - to eggs and milk- i could not give the food to. Pricey too. Additionally, we are vegetarian, and when we got home with our take... More

A bit pricey compared to Tokyo, but they have a lot of nice dishes available. I had a nice tempura soba serving today - big serving and very tasty. Service is a bit rushed and although the staff looks Japanese, they seem to have dropped the Japanese way somewhere years ago ;-)

Pieces and portions are small. You have to pay an extra $2 for sashimi, and still only get two small pieces. Rolls are equally stingy. Although the food is good, I hesitate to return based on the portion sizes. The sushi appetizer menu is also lacking in creativity and option.

When my wife and I lived in Japan, a steaming bowl of ramen always hit the spot on a cold winter day when out in the neighborhood. It was bitter cold outside when we left the theater yesterday, so we chose Daikanyama for dinner. We both ordered the Daikanyama Bowl (chicken for me, tofu and vegetables for my wife) with... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us so we drive 15 mins to next town to try it out for take out Sunday dinner. The food was fair quality/taste, the portions were surprisingly (shockingly) small and it was very expensive! We will NOT be returning to Daikanyama!

....we were there for lunch and ordered off of the special kitchen lunch menu. Both dishes-when they came out-were excellent, the problem was one came out in 10 minutes, followed 10 minutes later by the other dish, and that is unacceptable. However, as noted the food was excellent, a chicken katsu was amongst the best that I had ever had,... More
