Good but pricey

We went here as a family of four. It was recommended by people within the area. We were very happy with the food quality and service. But the bill at the end of the night was shocking and very over priced. Be well aware of what you are ordering when you go here!

We go every year when our friends come to visit. Everyone orders a different dish and we share it. We go on Sunday or Monday early (5:00) because everything is half price till 6:00. A favorite among the locals.

We waited in long line on a day when they had a half price bar sushi. We ate like queens and kings in a fun bar atmosphere, with wonderful food. Recommend highly.

Nice couples atmosphere, but families fit in nicely. We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday, but were seated immediately. Elaborate bar with local spirits and beers. We only ate hand rolls, but the entrees were tempting. Hand rolls were beautifully presented and very flavorful. Worth a second visit.

Everything I have ordered here over multiple occasions have been delicious! From the fusion sushi rolls, to the pork ramen; I have not been disappointed yet. However, the service has always been "iffy." Some days you will have someone great, and the next will make you want to get up and leave. Basically expect great food and spotty service.

We have been coming here for years, usually for their 50% off on Sunsays at 5 (be there by 4:15). Love the food but sometimes service is horrendous (like yesterday). Sometimes fine. The fab food at half price is worth it but it would be nice if they wouldn't take their customers so much for granted.

Came at 5:30pm and had no trouble getting in without reservations. 25% off on Friday nights until 6pm. Everything was delicious except the poke which was just ok. Excellent service. Happy hour deal makes it a good deal.

We visited this restaurant in our last day before we return to mainland. We got a side bar seat because the restaurant were quite full and it turned out that it is a privilege to seat and being served by the bartender who is very helpful. We order sushi, ramen and also a dry aged beef which is very tasty.... More
