“Fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Very small and personal. Hidden in a corner of a plaza just off Hwy 41. The rolls are tight and fresh. Nice menu and great service.

“it's all about food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

mediocre looking inside, this place surprises with the quality of the food and the size of the portions. seafood is obviously very fresh, and they put a generous amount in every kind of rolls. also, instead of usual 6 pieces rolls they offer 8. they definitely want to make sure no one stays hungry there.
i am not a fan of fried food whatsoever, but after i've tried my boyfriends calamari tempura, i immediately ordered another portion - it was that delicious!
service is nice and accommodating. will come back there again and again.

“Consistently good and fresh...PGI's best kept secret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We love to go here. The sushi chef, who is Japanese, is the owner, the restaurant is small, and cozy. Very clean. The salmon entree, comes in a bento box presentation with lots of goodies, is EXCELLENT. It's a LARGE piece of salmon in the chef's special sauce and baked or broiled. Everyone who has had it raves about it. The sashimi and sushi is excellent. They serve wine and saki. One crazy dessert that they have is Red Bean ice cream in what feels like raw rice dough. My brother and I think it is just out of this world! It's tucked away in a corner of the Toll's Plaza on Rt. 41S, hard to see from 41. We think it's a best kept secret!

Nice place, good sushi,a bit pricey but worth a visit. Will reccommend to others. You dont want to skimp on price when itcomes to sushi.
