Just stopped in for a quick dinner. The service was exactly what we needed for that visit. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. We ordered the Hurricane Roll and the Wauwatosa Roll. The food came quickly and was absolutely the most delicious sushi we have had in a long time. Our meal was $25 for the two rolls combined.... More

We were at this restaurant on a slow Monday night. The service was efficient for a group of nine. The quality of Sushi was very good. Other food was good - not exceptional but not disappointing. The Tempura was above average. This is not a "destination restaurant" but a very solid choice if you are in the neighborhood.

You know the place. The dark setting to hide the worn carpets and musty oder. Food was decent. Standard Asian dishes. I would not rush back given the many other heat places to est in the area.

This sushi restaurant is the closest one to my home, but it has a terrible atmosphere, and even worse customer service. Upon walking in, you are assaulted by blaring Top 40 American music that drowns out any attempts at conversation, not calming Japanese music or even upbeat Japanese pop. A host appears, seats you, and then disappears. No matter if... More

It was my first time at this restaurant. It was a Saturday night and we got immediate seating. The sushi was so good! the salads with the ginger dressing and the miso soup were tasty too! We had dumplings and vegetable tempura for an appetizer....delicious. I wanted to try the peach saki or the blueberry saki, but decided to save... More

Extremely slow service, dirty table, average sushi, expensive pricing. Groupon brought me in, but I am never coming back.

This is one of my "go-to" sushi places in town, though I don't frequent it as much as Fujiyama due to higher prices. They put out a Groupon fairly often & I always buy one & visit. Fish has always been fresh in the sushi rolls and they have some tasty specialty selections (especially w/ the white tuna). Atmosphere is... More

I've been to Ginza many times, mostly for lunch, and a few times for dinner. I will say right off the bat that if you are in a hurry, this is not the place to go. Every time I've gone there for lunch, I've regretted it as the whole experience takes nearly 2 hours, even when it is not busy.... More
