Very good food, attractive atmosphere, excellent service

My very first visit was a couple of years ago, and at that time I was impressed by the service, and by the food. Recently my husband and I ordered takeout in person. I was pleased to find the service is still pleasant, and the food quite delicious. There was enough shrimp in my dish for... read more

First of all if your going to own a restaurant atleast taste the food that you make. the food here was bland and the sushi was blah. It's a nice scene with a large sushi bar area and we were sat pretty quickly. The service was sporadic at times and other times we had to wave them down. Hopefully it... More

This is close to my work life, and is always great for lunch: oriental food, or sushi. If you're visiting from out of town, good place, clean, good service and food. If you're local, half price sushi Sunday, terrific sushi rolls, and regular oriental food. Combination lunches, bento boxes, or sushi and sashimi are good! I almost always get the... More

Excellent appetizers! Very prompt service! Main courses were a delight too! We were visiting and our local friends took us there. They had eaten there many times and highly recommended the restaurant. And we could see why. We were a bit surprised that for a weekend evening, there were not many people. Don't know why.

I went to this place a few years ago when it just opened. I was disappointed and didn't go back several years until yesterday. I was in the neighborhood and was surprised to see this place still open. I assumed that they are staying in business because they managed to improve. It turns out that they are now even worse...

My parents come here frequently and have raved about the food, so we decided to come for 1/2 price sushi Sunday. We made reservations, as we were a large party, for 4:30 - hoping to avoid the dinner rush. After getting our drinks, I had to remind the waitress that we were ready to order (we had been at our...

I like to eat here on Sunday when the sushi is 1/2 price. Always delicious, good quality, and beautiful presentation. Servers are friendly, but several times it seemed to take forever to get our orders. Just don't stop here if you're in a rush! Otherwise I highly recommend. And they have a nice drink menu as well.

We had no expectations when we went to the Empire Asian Bistro - we were just looking for someplace to eat after a long drive. Wow! The food was some of the best we've ever had and I don't say that lightly. Our server was very attentive and efficient. Our only regret is we don't have anyplace comparable where we... More
