went here with my family at 10:20 on a Saturday night and was told kitchen closed 6 minutes ago. Why post you are open till 10:30 if you shut the kitchen down at 10:14 especially on a Saturday night. We were very loyal customers, now we will never return.

A few things. Our party had a little 5 year old. The mom was informed she would be charged $7.00 for the child to sit in the seat at the grill, even though the mom would share a few bites with her off of mommy's plate. The child was not hungry like the adults were. The most inexpensive order off... More

They have very good sushi, however it took a while to get it, my husband ordered teriyaki steak. They served his meal a long time before serving my sushi. The steak was over cooked, dry and tough!

Excellent service and good ambiance (although I can do without the TVs.) Extensive menu including sushi, noodle dishes, lots of appertizers, fried rice. I had the seafood fried rice - a nice dish with pieces of salmon, shrimp, and scallops. My son loved the chicken yaikitori. The shrimp tempura was good with a very nice dipping sauce. BBQ beef on...

Went there for a "quick" business lunch and the 3 of us ended up tasting half the menu .. Not a single item which was not ULTRA fresh, nicely presented (sorry was too hungry to take pictures) and spiced to perfection. Friendly, fast and precise service, family atmosphere (owner, kitchen staff and servers joined each other for after service lunch!!).... More

Visited here as I pretty much always have an urge to eat sushi and the reviews were good. Very friendly service from all staff and the sushi was very good. I had the sashimi platter with extra tuna and yellowtail sashimi. It was all very good. I enjoyed the hot saki and had red bean ice cream for dessert. Very... More

I eat lunch here regularly, and have found the sushi to be the best in Corpus Christi. Their specials are always creative and well-prepared. They also have several dishes for the non-sushi eaters in a group such as bento boxes and Yaki Soba. Their Spicy Garlic Edamame is delicious! I ordered their one Korean dish today which comes in a...

The sushi is always fresh at downtown location. Boyd comes up with very creative rolls and appetizers that aren't found elsewhere. We enjoy sitting at the sushi bar and chatting with him.
