“Can't say enough about the food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Although the service can be somewhat slow .... the food is well worth the wait. The sushi is fresh and delicious and the main meals are creative and very good. I have been here several times and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them if you have time to enjoy the company of the one your with.

“Love this Japanese Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

Excellent - not a sushi eater, but hear it's the best. I love their Shrimp ton-don, or something like that!

“Freshest is Bestest!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

Recently bought a second home in Punta Gorda and found this little gem today! So excited to find Japanese food in Punta Gorda, and some of the best sushi I have EVER had. The fish was melt in your mouth fresh and you just can't fake it when the fish is raw, can you! I had a rainbow roll, which is a california type roll with slices of four varieties of raw fish atop, garnished with a paper thin slice of avocado. Also had spider maki, the soft shell crab, lightly coated and fried, had extra crabmeat mixed into the rice . . . delicious. My daughter ordered a luncheon dish (don't remember the name of it) which came in a large graceful bowl, with rice on the bottom, a lightly breaded and fried piece of chicken breast, topped with what tasted like an egg foo young mixture and a slightly creamy sauce . . . the chicken was so tender I could pick a piece from the whole using just my chopsticks! Service was efficient and very polite, the sushi chef is quite friendly and was talking about the current price for tuna with one of the (obviously regular) customers. All in all a very comfortable ambiance, with excellent food (and I am very critical) and a place I know I will frequent whenever I am in town.

“Best Japanese Restaurant in Charlotte County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

Sushi and sashimi are the best. My wife likes cooked food and goes for the grilled chicken. I've had the steak before and it is as tender a filet that you can find. They also have the best gyoza around. Love the ginger dressing on the salad.
