“Attentive servers, great presentation, fresh ingredients, delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Delicious sushi; always fresh and delightful. I order the Salmon, rare. Though I prefer the old menu (stacked on veggies and rice) it is still well prepared.
The service is in the top 5 in Springfield. Good Happy hour. Decent wine list.
Clean bathrooms - which of course would indicate that the kitchen is also clean.

Busy happy hour.
If you have children make sure to ask for a table near the fish tank. It is huge, very colorful and will keep the children entertained.....adults too for that matter.

“Best Happy Hour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

One of the best Happy Hours in Springfield! Plenty of drink specials, 1/2 price Sushi and appetizers. A fun place to meet friends to wind down after work. The wait staff are friendly, accurate and quick.Would highly recommend the Crispy Wontons (best crab rangoons, ever!).

“Not my kind of dining”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The atmosphere is okay, kind of cramped. The food portions were very small for the price. The service was slow.

“Not as good as it once was”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

While this is still a great restaurant, it is not as good as it once was. We eat here several times a year, and have always enjoyed the great cuisine and service, but lately, the menu has not been up to par with previous offerings since they lost their head chef. Still worth a visit. Still great service. The saltwater aquarium is relaxing. Great wine selection. Food is still good, just not as good as it once was.
