Great bargain! You get entertainment and great food for a reasonable price. Would be a great place to take the kids. We were absolutely stuffed when we left.

Who would have thought you could get good, fresh sushi in Pigeon Forge, Tn? Well.....I found the place. Friendly staff, smaller restaurant, everything hand rolled and fresh! Good prices, fast service. Will go back!

We go here very often. The food is cooked in front of you on a giant wok. Food is excellent and very tasty. We always have Johnny prepare our food. He does the whole show. Highly recommend.
