Good variety of sushi and other Japanese food. Clean and nice restaurant. Quick service and the taste of food is very good. We went this time for the maki rolls. Staff is friendly and efficient.

The food here is good. We ordered sashimi, tempura, and salmon. I ordered the fried salmon skin salad with black sesame dressing and the serving was enough for two people to share. We came at the end of the lunch rush and got the lunch...More
