Simply the best sushi in the Dayton area. Period. The place is small and there are chances you're walking out smelling like an asian cook. But for that there's the washing machine.

There have only been 2 Korean restaurants that I've enjoyed (around Dayton and Cincy area), this being one of them. Kalbi is delicious as well as other Korean dishes. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone craving for some good Korean food. My top choice is still Korea House on Montgomery Rd in Cincy.

I love this little place. It's a hidden gem in our neighborhood. The ingredients are fresh and every roll I've had has been great. The Centerville Roll is wonderful as is the Orange roll. It's always busy; therefore, it may take a little time for them to prepare your food. The exhaust fan doesn't always work, and you may walk... More

Usually pretty full on a Sat night, but you can still walk in and get a table. I haven't tried the sushi, although it looks good.

Went to Kabuki with my grandsons because they are HUGE sushi fans, and love this place. I found our sushi to be good, but not extraordinary. The home made soy sauce for dipping was good, but very salty. The wasabi was good but very tiny in portion. If you like wasabi, you might want to request additional. The service was... More

This little place has class, style, great food, great service and makes me want to go back for more. My husband loves their sushi (so many kinds to choose from) and I love the korean food, especially the spicy chicken dol sot. The bulgogi is also fantastic.

I really don't want to share how much I love this place because I don't want it to get so crowded I can't go any more! After living in Hawai'i where we could get authentic Asian foods of all types without even working at it, it took some time to get up the courage to try the same food in... More

We picked this sushi joint based on reviews and it did not disappoint. So many speciality rolls to choose from. I got the playboy and bake shrimp and crab rolls. So good. So much flavor and different combinations.

This is the best sushi for the price in Dayton that i have found anyways. The hot sex roll is great. We have tried a lot of different rolls and they are all good. The place doesn't look that great from the outside but is great inside!!!
