Non-Japanese Japanese!

If you know Japanese food and tradition, you will likely walk out as soon as you walk in. However, if you don't, you may enjoy the loud, over-the-top atmosphere and wait staff and the "Americanized" sushi. The prices and service are not bad . It's just not Japanese. So if you really want a Japanese... read more

Have been here twice since it reopened. Once for dinner once for the lunch buffet. The place has been cleaned up somewhat with some cool blue under lighting added to the bar area giving it a more hip and modern feel. The menu is extensive with four or five pages of sushi alone. Ordered various rolls to try and prices... More

Just happened to spot it across from shopping area. Great buffet and lots of different kinds of sushi. A bit pricey but still quite good.

A good place for a quick and very reasonably priced variety Asian lunch. We opted for the buffet, so this is a review of just this food. The hot items (Chinese/Japanese offerings) are very good and kept at temperature. The miso soup, sashimi, and ahi poke are delicious. The sushi is good, but much of the selection is similar in...

Waiter wad very attentive! Try the freshly... More

My favorite is the Alaskan roll. Love their Agedashi tofu. Friendly service. Their buffet is bountiful but I really don't like sushi unless it's prepared and eaten immediately. Been coming here for years and while there is better sushi in finer restaurants, this is a great neighborhood place with moderate prices.

RuSan's was always a favorite neighborhood sushi place but it fell into desperately sad times and failed inspections. It's been bought out, remodeled and improving and the food is back up to its former glory! I waited to review after 2 visits and both times I was so pleased with the "new" "improved" RuSans! The food is great, the new... More

I ordered the sushi and a teriyaki rice bowl. The sushi was good but nothing to write home about. The bowl of rice was spicy and a really great value around $2!!

Went with Six workmates to this restaurant, spur of the moment decision, as we could not get into another restaurant. We have been there before, and knew that it was a good place to get a meal. When we went to the desk, the manager recognized us for trips we have been making to this establishment at least once a... More
