“The best Japanese restaurant in North Alabama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We had lunch here and it was excellent! The sashimi and sushi were fresh and delicious. The owner, Yi, said he has fresh fish flown in regularly and the results are obvious. Everything was perfect, from the service, to the menu variety (which includes not only the aforementioned sushi and sashimi but a wide variety of cooked menu options, bento-style boxes and specials), to the meal presentation, which was very novel and attractive. The restaurant also has the popular cook-at-the-table option with a dedicated chef performing and grilling your meal while you watch. The restaurant is newly redecorated and is a tasteful blend of dark woods and upscale trimmings, a very relaxing and pleasant dining atmosphere. Servers were attentive and friendly. This is by far the best Japanese meal I have had in a loooong time and brings a new level of dining to Guntersville.
