“Best sushi in Hampton Roads!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I've not had sushi this fresh since I lived in California! I am SO impressed, I will be frequenting this restaurant. The building was pristine! So clean! The staff was very friendly. It was fairly obvious that it was our first time there, we were given a complimentary dish after our soup and salad that was to die for. We had the place to ourselves. We chose three chef's special rolls for dinner; Godzilla, Tiger and Mango Shrimp. The special rolls are 8 pieces instead of 6, and they are large pieces! You will pay for fresh seafood anywhere in this state, however I feel it was an excellent value. Go there!

“Amazing food, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

I love this place! The food is tasty and it's not too expensive. The specialty rolls are awesome- try the mango shrimp roll. Service is just ok.

“Amazing! Lives up to the 5 stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Driving to Norfolk, and had to stop for dinner. Found this place on TA, and decided to go for it. WOW! Imaginative rolls, very fresh fish, nice service, and for northeasterners accustomed to gouging sushi prices, a bargain. Don't hesitate!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

We went on tripadvisor to find a sushi resturant and this one lived up to its reviews. We initially experienced some difficulties finding the place so we called and the server was nice enough to stand outside and wait for us to get there even though it was 9:01 and they closed at 9. We ordered 7 rolls and all seven were exellent. You can bring your own wine if you want too. One of the best we have been to. We are not experts, but we were extremely satisfied.

“Fresh, tasty with nice variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

"Discovered" this through my GPS and a Google search for sushi joints on route back from Yorktown. Nice assortment of lunch items, respectable but not outrageous collection of rolls, attentive service. Roll prices seemed a bit pricey ($10-$12), but not the end of the world.

Sushi selection was broader than most of the other places I've been to in Hampton Roads...pleasant surprise to see scallop, quail egg, sea urchin, etc on the menu. Everything we ordered was tasty, well-presented and enjoyable. Something to note (not bad, not good, just a thing): looks like most of the "spicy ____" sushi are prepared with "Japanese mayo" (vs a chili-like sauce), so things like spicy scallop, spicy yellow tail are more creamy than they are zippy.

We'd go back if in the neighborhood (very close to Newport News).

Total cost for two of us (no lunch specials for us): $48 (after taxes, before tip) for two rolls, 4 "pairs" of sushi, and ice tea.
