The staff was very friendly, good service. But the food doesn't taste anything like a Japanese cuisine. I had the mackerel filet, it was very greasy. My husband had the chicken sukiyaki and the sauce was too sweet. The rice wasn't good either.

The Nighiri were far too large to enjoy. Rolls were ok, but the fish didn’t seem too fresh which is not really surprising given it is in Bishop. The one upside is that it gives you alternatives to the usual food options you find in...More
