This was our sixth visit. The chef/owner consistently over delivers. Most everything is fresh but I've dropped them to four stars due to frozen pork for my fave katsu don.

The quality of the food and the service greatly exceeded our expectations. Extremely friendly with the owner chef personally greeting and seating you (when not cooking). Food tastes very clean and fresh as obviously only fresh ingredients are used. The standard Asian fare ( sushi rolls, soups etc.) all were fresh and natural tasting. Prices may initially seem a little... More

Wasabi is great! The sushi is excellent and always fresh. If you aren't in the mood for sushi, then try the Bibimbop(a sizzling rice dish with all kinds of wonderful flavors & textures) and the Bulgoki (tender, delicious marinated beef). Both of these traditional Korean dishes are awesome! I really would like to try the beef short ribs on our... More

We were craving sushi and went based on Trip Advisor reviews. We went for lunch and had the $1.50 nigiri sushi (tuna) and tuna roll which was under $4. Then we decided to 'splurge' and ordered two more rolls: Spicy Hamachi (Yellowtail) with scallion and Spicy Salmon with asparagus. They were both delicious! As if that wasn't enough, we ordered...

Forget the strip mall location because once you step in this nicely appointed dining room, great things happen. The rice is on the high end of the seasoning spectrum, the fish is super fresh and the rolls are wonderfully creative. We also enjoyed Vegetable Udon, Bibimbop, Gyoya Soup and two different kinds of Kimchee.

It is family owned and operated and customers are truly treated like family. The quality of thier sushi is outstanding and the chef is willing to accomodate substuting ingredients in rolls. Honestly everything we have... More
