We are staying at the JW Marriott and have been for about 5 days now. We tried this place on Friday night. It was my husbands favorite meal since we've been here. He really like the sushi. I am not a sushi or seafood person. I ate the chicken and steak - they were very good. I don't understand the... More

OK to have the buffet or a small bite but not the evening out as expected. We had a la carte menu with cold sake. Starters were good. Tempura shrimps and tuna. Main course was a bit dissapointing. The sushi and sashimi platter was just average and the softshell crab was just OK. The chef definately need more classes as... More

They typically host buffets on weekends so check first. We have never eaten a la carte and enjoy their buffet immensely. They have three primary sections - sushi/sashimi, Japanese warm/cold cuisine and desserts. The sushi selection is impressive and very tasty. They do not present "basic" sushi selections like mainland California rolls, but many from their specialty list. I particularly... More

The restaurant is located in the J.W. Marriott. This was the best tasting, freshest Sushi I have ever had. The Sake flight with three different types of Sake was a great complement to our meal. The staff are very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Not sure where Floyd and qanik ate - but that wasn't the experience we had. We had the seafood buffet on a Friday night. Service superb, Sake list extensive, only down was no sushi on the sushi table. I love sushi, my husband not. So he ate lots of steak and other wonderful things from the buffet. I had some... More

Do not eat here! Way over priced for below average food, and bad service. We ordered the buffet and only half of the food was ok to eat. What we did eat was bland. The whole experience was a disappointment.
