BEST Asian restaurant I have ever ate at! They have it all Sushi bar,open flame grill and tempura sit down dining. I have had the pleasure of dinning in all three rooms. I might add the drinks are mixed as excellent as the food tastes. Atmosphere is where anyone would like to take a "first date".

I really enjoy the tempura type dining. The food always tastes fresh and served hot. Definitely a Fun place to eat with a group of friends. I recommend getting the fried rice with any of the dinner choices for only $1.75 per person,

Our chef Jorge was the best. We were all in tears from laughing so hard at his comedy and he put on a great show! Food was great. We will be back again soon!

I used to LOVE this restaurant. They had the freshest Sushi in the Inland Empire and I would always order their sashimi dinner. But something changed when they moved to their new location. While it's not bad, it no longer rates as #1. What happened?

The service was slow and the sushi was decent. I'm from Oregon and we have amazing sushi places there. I was expecting more from the raving reviews. The interior is set up nicely, but the staff there could be more friendly. We were asking questions about items on the menu and were frequently told 'it's there in the menu' when... More

Restaurant has changed hands over the years but the cooks on the grill side remain the same. I can always count on my scallops tasting delicious and can never get enough of their fried rice with ginger sauce on top. Sayaka's is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in the area. I always eat on the... More

Place is in a strip mall. Ample parking. Surroundings not well kept.. no landscaping. Inside is spacious but decor is non existent. Food is good... but not super good to make up for the bad ambience. Service is good.

I have been to the main dining area and teppan grill and have always been impressed. Delicious teriyaki sauce (had it on beef, chicken, and salmon over the years) and their salad dressing is also excellent. The teppan grill is entertaining if you're in a group, though I prefer the menu items as the portions are generous and the prices... More

We went with friends to enjoy teppanyaki. I had New York steak and lobster and my wife got shrimp and scallops. I had special requests on how to cook my meat and the chef did a got job with the instructions. My wife said her scallops were some of the best she's had. The New York steak was very thin... More

The Place: outside of restaurant is non inviting. Huge and spacious area inside. Minimal decor. No smell which is good FOOD: Ramen (big serving)and Udon were good. Price is ok $$. All You Can Eat Sushi is $19.95 for lunch - cannot comment on this.
