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

I love sushi and have been to Japan. Their sushi is top notch and very fresh. My only complaint it is very expensive unless you have a Groupon or something similar.

We eat here every time we come to Milwaukee. While the service may lack finesse, it is quick and the sushi is very good. We also like the calamari. I'm partial to the special hurricane roll and always order that. My husband thinks the sashimi is excellent.. It's a casual place with a steady business and you can carry on... More
