This is a goto place when you can't decide where to go. They have a variety of good adorably priced. It is right across from the Fiesta Resort & Spa which made it very convienent. Also about the only Asian place that offers corn on the cob and for a middle westerner that's a big deal. Service... read more

This is the restaurant that I have used the most. I've eaten here three times. My Co worker and I have tried to eat at a different place every night and this was our fallback eatery. The yakitori is done (which, in Saipan, seems to be a minor miracle), the portions more than ample and taste good. I might mention... More

About 5 minute walk from Hyatt hotel. Though it seems like a Japanese restaurant, it actually is a chinese restaurant. It was cheap and the portion was big. Taste was good enough also. I think i will go back next time in saipan!

Biz wasn't bad because of its location but the food definitely has a lot of improvement to do. Noticed a rotten piece of avocado in our California roll, spicy ramen was just regular Shoyu ramen with some kimchi on top, definitely mediocre food

Tried again this visit May 2015. Prices went up, same food slow service and as usual Japanese tourists get tended to first and given the good chop sticks, everyone else gets the cheap throw a ways.

The prices have gone up since we were last there. Really? $32 for a rainbow roll? Good luck getting locals to pay that. Ridiculous. It looks like they have bitten off more than they can chew with their expansion and might be paying too much on their lease.

Horrible service. We waited one hour & our food still did not come. And, they served the tourists before other customers. I guess they don't want or need other business.

Bit pricey and service can be slow. They tend to favor the Japanese tourists over the non Japanese its obvious with the difference in chop sticks provided, the Japanese get the real ones and everyone else gets the cheap throwaways. I Had the Karage chicken which was ok.

I chose this restaurant because it was walking distance from the hotel and saw it on the tourist channel on the hotel tv. It is decorated like you are under the sea with blue walls, painted fish, a dolphin in the middle of the table. But around the corner is a traditional Japanese seating area, where folks would sit on... More

Sushi rice has no flavor, soba was not fresh and has no flavor, the service is extremely slow, I had to wait 10 minutes for some ginger, the sushi roll was so so, and the fresh oysters was not that fresh. The experience overall was probably a 3put of 10, extremely disappointed, what a waste of time and money, I... More
