Superb Sushi

We ate lunch here today and enjoyed the careful preparation and delicious flavors! Our server was very attentive. Order the Kansas Roll! Topped with a fried banana. I know. Seems strange but oh so good. Clean and modern atmosphere. We'll be back!

After reading many of the other reviews here, we decided to this place over some of the other Asian restaurants we have tried in the area. The establishment is a converted diner that has been remodeled, which does still look clean inside. After receiving the first item we had ordered, Wonton Soup, we could tell this was going to be...

We are traveling through the area and located this place thanks to this app. We ordered the sushi. The inside is nice with a friendly atmosphere and the food was very good, ordered the Kansas roll.

Ate at this restaurant instead of having delivery. Very nice atmosphere! Restaurant is nicely decorated. We had 2 orders of Crab Rangoon which was very good. Sweet & Sour Chicken was also very good. Very clean, nice friendly people and fast service. Servers are very good. Good place to go for Chinese food with reasonable prices! We will eat here... More

This is a very good Chinese restaurant the service is always friendly and the food is always consistently good. The restaurant is not what it seems from the outside, on the inside it's very nicely decorated West Asian decor. It has a very comfortable seating and nice atmosphere, this place also serves a very good sushi bar and also has... More

We ordered delivery from this restaurant tonight. Fast delivery, hot food and friendly delivery person! We have also eaten at the restaurant itself in the past and it is clean, good service and friendly employees. Either way, eat in or delivery, you will get good hot food, good service and friendly employees. Would recommend this restaurant and we will eat... More

Don't judge this restaurant on its appearance. I never going anywhere else for Chinese food in Topeka. Great fried rice! Everything is delicious!

We recently ate at this little place that does not look attractive at all from the street, but is quite nice on the inside. The old saying "don't judge a book by its cover" really applies here. There are basic meals that are easy to order and a menu for those that are a little more experienced at the oriental... More

This restaurant is nothing special to look at but the food is tasty and portions generous. For lunch I ordered cashew chicken and it came with rice, soup and egg roll. The cost $6.50. The flavor rivaled my favorite cashew chicken ever. Great wait staff, tasty food and good value--don't pass it by because of the lack of ambiance.
