“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This little -- though it's expanded quickly -- restaurant offers some wonderful food. If you like crab, try their softshell crab "tacos": inexpensive and delicious. Actually, I think anything on the menu would be good, though I can't claim to have tried everything!

“Great Sushi! Slow Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were very impressed with the sushi here at Meiji. They have great combo deals on the sushi rolls, which provide really good value. We had the Dragon, Caterpillar, and Spider rolls, and were impressed with all 3. We also had their Tuna Nigiri, which was really good & fresh. I would put this sushi restaurant up against any in NWA for flavor, freshness & value.

Our only complaint was that the service seemed a little slow, despite the fact that we were eating fairly late, and the restaurant was well below 50% capacity. It makes me a little hesitant to go there during busy hours.

“Best Sushi, Sake, and Staff in NWAR.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This place is hands down the only place to dine for sushi in Northwest Arkansas. Everything is always fresh. They feature fish & oyster selections not offered anywhere else. The menu sports all kinds of unique creations that really separate them from all the other wanna-be's.
Personal Fav's: Spicy Crab Salad, Smoked Salmon Nigiri (be sure to ask for the fresh wasabi, this is not that green paste everyone else pawns off), Smoked Cash roll, Daikon roll, fried rice (1000 times better than competitors), Seafood Champone (soup only offered on special dates), all of the oysters (none of that Gulf junk, they import theirs), the sake menu has dozens of options, the Japanese whisky is as smooth as green label johnny walker, and the wasabi bloody Mary's are a house special (they even stuff their own olives).
The staff are all top notch and reflect the mastery that Darwin (the owner) demands of anything his name is attached to.

“Shut your face hole and fill it with awesome sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I know the owner/sushi chef and his restaurant quite possibly serves the best sushi inland that you can ever possibly get in Arkansas. Try the Super White at any and all costs! Also, the crab seaweed salad is freaking amazing. Basically, anything you order is going to be awesome sauce.

“Put the computer/phone down and get here now.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is THE place to get sushi in a 500 mile radius. From the FRESH wasabi (oh yeah fresh, not that paste cheap substitue) to the spicy crab seaweed salad, everything on the menu will make you glad you came. The atmosphere is unbeatable, the staff is top notch. You want Uni...yeah they can get it. The Super White will make you got to you old sushi place and deliver a solid open handed slap to your OLD chef's face.
