I've given this place many tries over the past few years (there just aren't sushi options on Broughton St). First of all, the sushi is just plain bad. Anyone who has had good sushi before would agree. The restaurant itself needs a MAJOR upgrade, it's shady, outdated, cheaply decorated, and could stand to be scrubbed a few times....it's actually too... More

Wow what a place. Tucked away a local told us about it and I'm glad he did. Don't let out or inside appearnce fool you. This was the freshest Nigiri we have ever had and we've tried it in more than one country. When your in Savannah and want sushi this is the go to place for freshness and service.... More

It's a perfect place if you are looking for a decent meal and to not spend a lot of money, my boyfriend and I got 16 pieces of sushi and both got meals and the total was $25. Definitely worth trying!

Enjoyed their teriyaki chicken with rice and vegetables. Very tasty, healthy and generous lunch special with salad all for under $6! Nothing fancy but a great value.

Ok! My wife & I walked in & sat down cause it was one of the only places open on Christmas at noon time. Well we looked around & OMG....use a few dollars to clean up or upgrade. The seats were ripped and had no cushion left. The menus had seen better days....like 10 years ago. The placed smelled like... More

You will find a serious minded chef working solo and pumping out some of the finest noodles and sushi around. Its a throw back no frills or bangs a throw back to the 70-80's in decor. They didnt waste money on deco the focus is fine food and its definetly successfull. Portions are fairly big as well. Great place

We stopped in here for a quick meal on the way to an event and we were severely disappointed. First of all, we were the only patrons in the place and no one seemed to care that we were there. They were sitting at a table in the back talking and saw us come in. They brought menus then seemed... More

We eat here at least every other week and sometimes weekly. They have the best sushi in town. The sesame chicken or bourbon chicken is to die for. Absolute nothing fancy, but it is always frequented by locals which is how we discovered it 10 years ago on our first visit. Now we live here and this is our go... More

This place gets harsh reviews sometimes because it's not a fancy 5-star japanese restaurant by far, but I've never had an issue here in four years. I always had food to make me satisfied and enough that I bring some home with me afterwords. I feel like many tourists visiting are put off by the wait staff because they are... More
