We made reservations for this place and were seated within a few minutes on the porch. The place is a little kitschy, but the music was just weird. It was not too loud, but latin classics from the 1950s mixed with 80s ballads. Did not help the atmosphere at all. The food was so-so. It is rare that I go... More

.. perhaps we just ordered the wrong things, but the food preparation was just so-so, ingredients were average and distinct oriental flavors were lacking

Have given up on this place. Apparently unless you consume a bunch of alcohol they move you to a little corner upstairs and make you wait and wait and wait. The sushi was fair, nothing that great. the Tempura was a little better but takes forever no matter what night we went. Service is fair. I try not to go... More

We were very pleased with the quality and selection of food available. The sushi was well prepared as were the cooked dishes. Service was good as well except for when we first arrived. There seemed to be some confusion or disorganization before we were shown to our table, but after that the service was good. The only negative was that... More

My fiancé and I love coming to this restaurant. We love the hibachi grill and the shrimp tempura. The udon noodle soup with shrimp tempura is also great. We also order spider rolls or unagi rolls which are also very good. The appetizers are delicious.

The only down side of this restaurant is the service can be a little slow when they are busy. If you don't eat sushi the Mongolian and tempura dishes are great. We will defiantly return.

Took a friend to lunch as a celebration and found it interesting but pricey for what we had. All was enjoyable but took time due to preparation. Will go again but will use for dinner when spending a little more is expected. For lunch, other options that are not nearly as costly.

My husband and I came here tonight. The food is quite good -- we had sushi, soup, salad, and noodles -- but our server was just awful. We were at the restaurant for almost 2 hours and there was just no reason for this. It was not too busy of a night and we didn't order anything complicated. Please, Tempura... More

We were greeted by the strong odor of fish as the sushi counter is just inside the door. As we made our way to the table, the smell dissipated. Server was friendly and informative, but could have been a bit quicker since there were only a few customers. Conversation level was very loud (poor building acoustics?) and at a table... More
