CLASSIC SUSHI

I can't believe how wonderful their sushi is and I love to sit around the bar and watch the sushi chef prepare the meals. The food is always consistent and excellent. The service is quite good and although small, the atmosphere is always pleasant and comfortable. Top rate!!

I went with my boyfriend for his birthday and we had a very nice time. The food was tasty, they have a great selection of sushis and sauces. The atmosphere was welcoming and service was quite friendly. It's a place one can dress casually or formally but not feel afraid of being welcomed by a buffet crowd. That with the... More

Small restaurant with a very unassuming outside appeal, but do not let that deter you from a great sushi find! They had a very extensive sushi menu with pictures for the new adventurer. The service was quick, courteous and very attentive.

We sat at the bar as the place was full. They have decorative boats that float sushi plates along the bar and provided a good distraction for our teenage sons. You pay buy the plate. We ordered entree's off the menu - the food was good and the prices were reasonable.

The food was superb and its a nice place if you like sushis! Plus you see how they make the sushis in the bar. I love how the set up the bar with the boats in which you can get appetizers and sweets!

We were all excited on a recent trip to southern NM (and even went two hours out of our way) to visit this restaurant that is written up in the guidebooks as offering floating sushi boats like we love from Japantown in SFO. We should have stuck to our rule to NEVER eat sushi in small towns, especially where there... More
