Special rolls are very good. we have been coming here for years. They also have Chinese food. Can't say we come here for that but we always get one dish for dinner along with the sushi/sashimi. Staff will get to know you if you come often enough. It's BYOB which is always a plus.

This is favorite place for lunch with co-workers or dinner with family. I highly recommend it! The bento boxes are a great value.

Where else can you get a generous entree, rice, full California roll, dumpling soup and a decent mixed-greens salad for $9!! This is a Japanese restaurant that does imaginative, seasonal Japanese food well but tacks on Chinese dishes as an afterthought. The General Tsao's chicken I ordered as a lunch special was actually a very basic sweet-and-sour chicken that bore... More

i had lunch with a co-worker and we were both very impressed with the classic, traditional sushi house decor. this little nugget is tucked back into the back of a cozy little plaza with parking in the back. The food was excellent. I had a bento box with a spicy tuna roll upgrade. there are a couple things i benchmark... More

It will be very tough to go back to our "go to" sushi and Chinese local places after an impromptu stop here. This was not what we expected in downtown Main Street Pennington. Everything from the somewhat laid back ambience to service to the absolute best General chicken, combo lo mien, curry chicken and an appetizer split 3 way (whitefish... More
