I liked the sushi and the staff was very friendly. The fish tasted fresh and the rolls had a good fish/rice balance.

The sushi chef will let you know what they got in that is super delicious and the menu is extensive! This is not just a sushi restaurant - there are rice and noodle dishes too.

I have always enjoyed coming here. Due to an unforeseen death of the owner, the family stepped up to keep his memory, passion and joy alive. Very friendly service, fresh food and great environment. Parking can be tricky but don't let that discourage you from trying this place and support your local family run restaurant.
