“Good sushi, cafeteria-style ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for a quick bite during the lunch hour and were seated and served promptly. The sushi portions are generous for the price, and quite tasty. The staff were helpful, although not overly attentive (empty water glasses, a considerable wait for the check). Overall, I would recommend this for a quick meal, but it definitely isn't somewhere I would visit for a nice dinner out.

“Hibachi is a Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We love going here and getting our dose of international culture. We have only ever visited the Hibachi side but I hear that the sushi is excellent. It is best to go on a busy night because we find that they take the time to really entertain you on those nights. It is also best to get a reservation ahead of time.

My only suggestion would be to give the restaurant a good cleaning.

“Nice Business Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a late afternoon business lunch and practically had the place to ourselves. Staff was very friendly and the chef put on a nice show even for the two of us. Portion sizes were a bit much for lunch but the food was tasty and they did a great job.

“not authentic in any way”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

having grown up in japan, I have pretty good idea of what the cuisine is like and nothing here exists there, from very crass décor to embarrassingly poor food... go elsewhere

“Great Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Best Sushi in town ! Service is terrible but the food is excellent. I go frequently and I know what to expect. So I ask the waiter ahead of time for extra plates for appetizer to share with the family and don't forget get to ask for your Soy Sauce dish it will never make it their if you don't. That being said the Sushi Chefs are pure Talent when it comes to making Sushi. It makes up for the lack of service trust me.
