Nothing worse than sushi that is not fresh. Fish should not smell.

“sushi family”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

so i went here the first time when it opened and it was horrible, my eel was lukewarm and my mom's steak was cold, and the tempura was so greasy that my wife was able to push it on a napkin and you could see an oil ring around it. And the sushi was good. Yet, when we complained they didn't do anything to fix the issue. Now, in may of this year we went back to give this restaurant another chance. Now the food was made better and nothing was too greasy, and nothing cold or lukewarm. Now, the only bad thing was the service was not the best because they were watching TV, and they didn't give us the attention that was necessary. I believe if they will have high prices on their food that they would give a least more attention to their customers instead of the TV. and the tempura was rare, and it was greasy for my mom. I am not trying to act like a horrible critic or perfectionist, instead i am being honest about this restaurant.And honestly we would come back if we were getting our dollars worth, because we are a Japanese family and we have grown up with the sushi, the tempura,and other dishes so when we go to these restaurants that specialize to Japanese food we are very picky and we look at the details even more because like i said earlier we've grown up with it for the majority of our lives.

“A New Sushi for Pocatello - AYCE that is MADE TO ORDER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The AYCE (All You Can Eat) lunch special is a little deceiving - it is not a "Golden Corral" or a belt driven pick-you-colored-plate.
The lunch special Monday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm costs 13.95 per person. You are seated with a menu and a selection paper. For lunch, you may choose as many Nigiri or Sushi Rolls as you like. It is made fresh to order from your selection paper. 2 complete rolls were very filling - the third was a real stretch for me. Traditional choices, veggie selections and some very creative "deep fried" outside the box options are offered.
The dinner includes all lunch selections AND a whole new menu with some more sophisticated entrees for 18.95.
There is a traditional menu including the traditional Bento Boxes and Teriyaki Selections for those that are not into sushi. They also have party trays available for those groups that want to try a variety. Take out is also available.
(AYCE does not apply to take out)
