“Well, the food is really good...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

If you want great ambiance or quick luncheon service, you will have to travel elsewhere. If really good flavors are your thing, you are in the right place. It took us over an hour to have our lunch and we were the second table! We heard a lot of complaints (as business people came in for their lunch break) due to the time factor. A lunch special pricing is advertised, BUT when you sit down the hostess DOES NOT hand you the special menu or even advise you of the offering. I observed every group not being notified of the special pricing - I had a coupon which is why I knew to ASK for the specials menu. Do not bother with the sushi rolls, even though miso soup is included (of course you have to ask for the soup) the rolls taste premade as if purchased from a sushi service. Go for the excellent food preparations. Clean and bright flavors, generous portions and friendly staff - We will go back in a month or so.
