My son and I stopped here on a driving trip. The restaurant was nice, a little dark, but there was soft music playing. We were impressed walking in. They also had nice chopsticks.

I enjoy going with my 3 children and husband. We like to order a soup sushi and a few entrees and have a family style meal. The waitstaff is so accommodating and this way we don't have a ton of leftovers! We have been here several times and always have a great experience.

Ate several times at the original Bleecker St location. The owner is very friendly and quite a story of how he ended up in Utica. The food was excellent blend of traditional and Asian fusion. This is as authentic as you can get. Spiced to taste. Great prices. The calamari is the best!
