“A Nice Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

We relied on this site to find a decent restaurant close to our hotel after a long day of driving. We were pleasantly surprised! The restaurant is pretty nondescript on the outside in a strip mall but large and well decorated on the inside. I had the sushi and thought the rolls were of good quality. Others in my group did the hibachi. The performance was entertaining and the steak and seafood cooked and seasoned well. The sake was good, wine list lacking but there were a couple Japanese beers among the usual selections.

“Best Sushi in Rapid City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Whenever we want sushi, this is where we go. Date nights and special occasions are only some reasons when we go here. The quality of the sushi is beyond our wildest expectations for Rapid City. If you are deciding on which place to go- choose here! The service is usually pretty quick and very friendly. The favorites are the Firecracker Roll and Black Dragon. Go here, you won't regret it.

“Lots of fun and good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were visiting kids and grandkids, and went to dinner here before the Rush Hockey game. They don't take reservations, and they don't put your name on the waiting list until all of your party is there, so get there early. We arrived about 4:45, and when we left around 6:00 or so, the place was full and there was quite a waiting list. The service was great, the chef was very entertaining, and the food was quite tasty. My wife ordered the hibachi scallops, and I had the hibachi steak. We were able to share with each other, and I would highly recommend that. Great place for families!

“Very good Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We went to dinner here twice during a family stay in RC, both times early meaning between 5 and 6 pm. The service was very good and food arrived fast. We sat in the "regular" part of restaurant, as it is separated into the hibachi room and another room with a sushi bar and a large screen TV. Hibachi visitors seemed to need reservations during weekend evening peak time. There was American jazz music playing and room was somewhat dark but clean. There are two Sumo wrestler statues in the waiting area which amuse the younger set. OK-back to the food.
There are a wide variety of specialty and routine sushi rolls, sashimi and sushi combo to choose from. Quality excellent both visits.Fanci Rainbow (10.95$) and Sweet Honey Rolls (13.50$) were very good and presentation done with care and attention. Sashimi was cool and fresh. Lettuce in salad could be greener but house dressing excellent. Miso Soup was the light variety and tasty- tofu chunks could be bigger. Also tempura shrimp a little rubbery but crab rangoon and fried spring rolls were very good. Dessert menu a little dissapointing-tempura ice cream and cheesecake. I was hoping for green tea or red bean ice cream...but all in all it was a pleasant experience. Waitstaff knows how to deal with children, whose eyes still widen as the fires from the grill flame up.The hibachi is visible from the "regular" tables. I would definitely return here- as we did come back within our 5 day visit to RC during spring break.
