Hidden gem!

Great food, great service, and is by far the best in town for sushi or hibachi. Quality sushi for the area and price.

I'm updating my review for Tokyo Japan after visiting it again recently. Formerly our go-to place for great sushi, the restaurant has been under new management for about a year now (the original owners moved to Shogun, and we followed). This was our first visit to Tokyo Japan since the management change, and unfortunately, the quality seems to have slipped.... More

The so called Chirashi showed before the seaweed salad and miso soup I ordered as starters... The usual disappointment when the Chirashi was actually a plate of sashimi instead. Why can't these so called authentic Japanese restaurants get this right?? JUST GOOGLE IT IF YOUR NOT SURE! It should be a selection of raw fish, vegetables and nori scattered over... More

I visited this restaurant after reading quite staggering reviews like "authentic", "best sushi in Greenville" and "the real deal". Sorry to disappoint you but this is not authentic sushi nor is it the best in Greenville (I think Wasabi 88 is better) and I don't actually expect the sushi to be authentic, I much prefer the West Coast Varieties to...

The sushi here is amazing! I would definitely recommend this place for sushi lovers. My favorites are the rock shrimp roll and the Manhattan roll. But, I'm not a big fan of their hibachi, it's a little sweet for me. And their rice that comes with the meal has an odd taste (maybe liquid smoke or too much sesame oil).... More

I've lived in Tokyo, and live sushi. We regularly eat sushi both here and when traveling. The sushi is high quality. Occasionally there are off days, but I've found that to be the case all over. Almost always we get a good meal here. We return often and I would recommend the food.

Been to Japan several times. This is more like real Japanese than other American Japanese restaurants I've been to, even in much larger cities. My wife liked the noodles. I prefer the seafood. Lots of sushi choices if you like that. For my part, I was glad to fine someone in Greenville that realizes that spaghetti is not an oriental... More

I really enjoyed the food. Only paid 1.99 for Bud light (per class). I've tried a few Japanese places so far and this is the best one I've had so far. The service could be a little better but the food is on point.

While attending a football game at East Carolina, my daughter and I stopped in after the game. Trusted the reviews on TripAdvisor and they did not disappoint! Unbelievable sushi. Truly edible art!

The best sushi in town. Authentic Japanese place. You'll notice a lot of orientals eat here, so that's a good indictor of the quality. I go here about every 3-4 months and every time I go it gets better. Over the past year the presentation of the plates has steadily improved. The food has always been good, but the chef... More
