“No arigato,, gotta go somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

due to hazardous driving conditions, i walked to the restaurant to eat.... there were 3 other people inside... but service was slow.. the salad dressing was terrible...I eat Japanese frequently so, I know... the other options were Italian or Ranch that did not fit with asian food..
the sushi was so so... the main dish.. sesame chicken.. did not taste sesame and the 2 sauces served with it were disgusting...the fried rice had no flavor... the chicken was dry..it was food... that is all I can say... will not return

“Don't bother!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We love sushi and this was disappointing. The Sushi Deluxe platter did not have enough variety and the flavors were bland. Had to put my own wasabi under the fish to get flavor. The baby octopus on the platter was not a good visual and looked like a large spider. The restaurant was dark and even the fish tank by the tables did not have enough fish to make it interesting. I'm sure there are better ones around Lancaster. Will keep looking.

“OK hibachi, better sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Food was OK but remember to BYOB. My wife had sushi and she said it was very good. The hibachi food was average. The server seemed new and didn't speak English very well.

Absolutely delicious sushi. The quality is top notch, and the fish is always fresh. Hibachi is always fun as well. Nice servers and great food!!
