I have been going to this restaurant on a regular basis (and probably will again tonight.) They offer a wide variety of well prepared sushi along with daily or weekly specials based on the availability of fresh fish. They have a wide selection of sushi rolls and can, of course, do tempura and teriyaki dishes.

Love this place, the "Monster crazy roll" is the best and don't miss the "Jalapenõ bomb" if you like spicy.

The food is fresh. Taste is about average. The amount is small. The price is $$. They seem never turned on the AC. I sometime feel it is too warm to dine in when it get crowded at a hot day. The pictures are the combine B at lunch.

Ate here three times while in the area on business. I only had the sushi, so I can't speak to the MANY other items on the menu. Delicious, fresh, flavorful sushi, very friendly and efficient service. Will be back!

Very fresh and great tasting sushi - some innovative rolls are served. Interior is a little special and the menu complex.

There is almost always a line outside during dinner time. The food is average but the price is above average. The place is small. Service is ok.

Good place to go when you're in a hurry. Nice people, fast service, very clean, well kept and apparently, well run. The cartoon-like TV was a bit distracting, but not loud. I agree with other reviewers about accessibility, but it is a gem! I ordered one of the Bento boxes for a dinner and found the tempura particularly good. Not... More

The chef's are very friendly, the wait staff is quick to help. Food here is made to order and enjoyable. Fish is fresh and tasty. Love their specialty rolls also although I can't think of the names.

They are friendly. Their hamachi is outstanding. Really outstanding. Good variety of Japanese dishes so it would appeal to non sushi lovers as well. Tempura was crisp and light. Cucumber salad with kani was excellent.

Thank M H
