This restaurant has great sushi very fresh a bit on the higher side price wise.....But then I ordered the Pad Thai. This worse Pad Thai I have ever hadd in my entire life including diet frozen food. Can't decide if it was the lack of flavor or the total dryness that was the final straw. The shrimo were hard to... More

I love going to the grill section and have the chef put on a show for the dinners. They give you plenty of good food and it's not too expensive. Fun date place. I take my employees there for Christmas party nite.

Been here twice in the last month with friends. The seaweed salad is amazing. My favorite rolls so far are the rainbow, the Christmas, and a spicy tuna/shrimp tempura combo. The servers have been very accommodating. On one trip they let us switch tables, on another they made us espresso martinis (not on the menu) and sent us a free... More

Oh this used to be outstanding! For the past year the food...sushi and drinks have been unedible. I don't know what happened to this place. I keep trying to like it but I won't go back until they change to the way it used to be! Sorry GG your losing business!

We went here for an early dinner. We were seated immediately.m The etched glass and wood carvings on walls were very nice to look at. Service was way to fast and we felt extremely rushed. We started with teriyaki chicken on a stick, hot and sour soup and dumplings. The soup was delicious, but the chicken was overcooked and the... More

This place is not good. It is adequate for the area but the takeout/delivery service is terrible and the manager is horrible. If you order from the website, you cannot rely that the order will be completed. For the third time, I called to ask about an order I made with the restaurant and they said they didn't have it....

We love the appetizers and especially the crab rangoon and the dumplings! Their house fried rice is really delicious and loaded with fresh vegetables...the peas have the taste and... More
