Came here because I was craving some fresh sashimi. Service was good. Nice green tea and the sushi roll I ordered was pretty tasty can't complain there. But the shashimi I ordered was still frozen. Fat pieces of frozen salmon. Still on the look out for good sashimi in Hampton roads.

Kids love sushi so decided to try this place out. Almost a 100$ later. Way too expensive. Adds up quickly. The food was good but not a favorite. May be back. May not.

Nice small local sushi restaurant! Pleasant atmosphere, great service! Try it out! The low key sushi places are the best!

The food was not very good. The noodles were your average oodles and noodles overcooked. The sushi was not good. We love sushi, but will not be going back here for our sushi/Japanese.

The sushi was wonderful and not overpriced, but the noodles were what blew me away. Absolutely delicious!
