Food was reasonably fast in... More

We have been to both locations (Spall and Commerce) but this review is for the Commerce location. The menu has all sorts of interesting and creative rolls which is why we came but in the end, the six rolls we ordered were variations of the toppings on the same filling. It was all tasty but nothing to wow. The sunomono... More

I'm usually a little wary of restaurants in small strip malls or plazas, but it would have been a mistake to not try this spot. Smallish but cool interior, this place was excellent from the time we entered. Very friendly waiter who was prompt without being obtrusive. We had the Viking Feast and it filled the 3 of us easily...

Our hotel recommended this restaurant because we could easily walk there and we had been in a car all day (beautiful scenery, but long drive).

Service... More

The rice has a bit of crab and this light bread crumble on top that is delicious. Their spinach gomae has a few different delicious sauces on them. Loved their sushi and... More

While this is one of the more pricey places to get sushi if your looking for quality raw fish this is the best place to go!

A very interesting menu, with alternative choices to the everyday sushi experience! Have been 5 times, and always quality food, presentation, service, and experience.

The avocado roll and chicken teriyaki were very good. My wife had the double tuna roll and it was delicious. Service was a bit below average.
