Stopped in for a solo lunch and was pleased with the menu options. The bento box was a good deal with lots of options. Slow service, but friendly.

We dropped in today for a quick snack and we're pleased with the food. The service was great and the sushi was good.

I just wanted a mid-evening snack and so I had an "Alaska roll" at the bar. It was salmon and avocado, delicious, simple, around $7 or so, just what I needed. Seated and served quickly, though they weren't super busy when I was there.

Went here on a whim hoping that it was a hidden gem and we were sorely disappointed. The food was mediocre at best- the rolls were chewy and were falling apart. The service was curt and we did not have an enjoyable experience. Based on the level of sushi we had on the west coast, we'd rank this one really... More

My family went on New Years Day. Service was not great. My wife's roll came 20 minutes after everyone else's food without any apology. My tempura was kind of tasteless but nigiri was OK. The real "star" of the show was the beef teriyaki. It was solid gristle, completely unchewable. I don't know if they thought they could just foist... More

I have never written a poor review of a restaurant that I found through Trip Advisor -- until now. I felt very deceived by the 3-star average this sushi joint seems to have earned. Unbelievably bad service and the prices are crazy high. My husband, child, and I did a spontaneous drop-in to get some ramen since we had arrived... More

Overall...nice quick friendly stop for lunch...food good in general but didn't like the 'cooked' sushi roll...I'd never had hot sushi before and I'll be avoiding it in the future...
