“It'll do...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Nice to have a japanese restaurant in Oakhurst...but, the food was just 'ok'. We had the Combo: Shrimp Tempura (w/veggies) & Chicken Teriyaki. Batter on tempura was thick, more like fish-n-chips. Chicken breast for teriyaki was either boiled, or just defrosted from frozen state...sauce poured on top - rather bland. STILL...it is a nice change from burgers & pizza.

“A Delightful Port in a Storm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

With many restuarants in Oakhurst closed the night of our Jan 2, 2013 visit we were just delighted to happen upon this warm, friendly, Japanese restuarant. Service was prompt. Food excellent. Full bar service. The side of gyoza was somewhat different that what we had experienced before and absolutely delightful!! Much enjoyed my combo of salmon teriyaki and assorted tempura! --Jeff

“Discount menu prices were not honored”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Waitress Debbie didn't honor the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday discount menu prices which would have reduced each meal by about $4. Chef Alex was skilled and cooked a nice meal. The interior design is a creepy aquarium theme.

“Awesome sushi for a small town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Love to eat here for both lunch and dinner. Can be a bit pricy if you eat individual rolls. There combo dinners are the real value.

“Great Vegetarian Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Yummy!
I have friends that say that they have had food poisoning here, but I have always had a great experience. I am local, so anything different is exciting, but I do eat out in the Bay Area and this is comparable. They have a delicious teriayki veggie bowl, good (if greasy...are they ever not?) tempura and I just found out they do vegetarian sushi! Now, I don't like seaweed, so that puts a damper on sushi, BUT they have tofu wraps in place of seaweed. So I get the fun experience of sushi without the fish OR seaweed! Awesome!
