“Not Good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

One of the worst Japanese restaurants I ve been to in a while. Although they tried to hide it with lots of rich, sweet teriyaki sauce, there were pieces of spoiled, pungent meat in my chicken teriyaki (total turn off!!), the batter for the tempura was thick and soggy and the small shrimp had no flavor (how did they do that?). Also, the rice in the sushi was overcooked to become a little gooey and mushy and it also needed more flavor. Plus they charged you $1.95 a person for hot tea (first time for me, normally water and tea is free). If they are going to do that at least re-fill your tea pot with hot water. They have the smallest tea pot that s only good for 3 small tea cups. Other than that, the service was ok, but the food was not OK and I don t think we ll be back to this Japanese restaurant in a long time.

“Best sushi in Tracy by far!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

I used to go to Blue Fin near the mall, the people there are rude. And the food isn't as good as Kengo. If you want sushi, they are kinda new but really good!!

“Pretty Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

We went there with a friend and our 2 children. The sushi was great and the service was too. We aren't particularly fond of rolls with cream cheese so that was not a selling point, but everything seemed fresh. The kids enjoyed their teriyaki chicken which was served with rice and salad. My son loved the ahi sashimi! We would go again!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

This place is one of the best Sushi in Tracy I've ever been. Tthere are lots of choices, like the grilled salmon, deep fried prawn rolls with cream cheese and their special lunch bento box, with their prices so affordable. They are open from Mon-Sat only. And one more appealing are their music, oldies but goodies. So if your looking for some place with yummy, splendid food, good music and affordable prices, just visit the place if you are around the area. Have a good time.
