Good Japanese atmosphere (I lived in Japan so I speak from experience.). However, it took us nearly 2 hours to be served fried rice and 4 sushi rolls. It's okay food but nothing to write home about in terms of sushi. If it's in your neighborhood it's good, but if you have options be sure to explore them.

The place is tucked in a street mall near a busy intersection. The decor is clean and the place feels very inviting. The waiter was very helpful when we came in around 9 on a Saturday night. It was the second time we visited this place. We tried the two-roll-dinner. It was very yummy. The creme burlee was soooo good!

However,... More

We frequent a lot of different restaurants, however this one is our favorite! We have been dining there on average 3-4 times a month for approx. 4 years. We always have the best service with Susan and staff. Everything is so fresh, creative and delicious! We have tried other sushi restaurants all over, but nothing compares to the sushi that... More

My wife and I visit this establishment regularly. We have been regulars there for well over 3 years. It is by far the very best sushi we have ever tasted! And the atmosphere is so nice and relaxing. When you walk inside you immediately feel like you are in another place, far away from all the hustle and bustle of... More

This place has the BEST sushi! The food is amazingly fresh and the service is excellent! This is the only sushi place that I go to because they are the best. We go frequently, and always bring friends, who are always impressed. We have never had a bad meal. Bruce, the owner, is always there and very friendly. He does... More

My wife and I have been eating sushi for 25 years. Anyone who eats sushi knows that you never know what you are going to get with half of these Sushi resturants nowdays trying to catch the sushi wave but having no clue how to make good sushi. We all know its all about the Rice. Anyway, if you are... More
