Spectacular servings, too much food but I like too much!! Food was on point, yum and filling plus staff were friendly and accommodating. We had to wait for a table, they are that popular and more were waiting after us. This place gets two thumbs up from me!

Went for lunch on a weekday. No queue and got seated immediately. We ordered a bento and a sushi plate. Both had generic servings. Very fresh. Found it amusing that the people manning the counter were Chinese (spoke Cantonese I believe) rather than Japanese. Overall a good place to eat Japanese food.

The Nigiri sushi portions are generous. I had (4) 2-piece Nigiri selections as well as a San Francisco roll and a Philly roll - all good. Service was also good. My check (no alcohol) was about $40 with tip.

We were a group of 3 and waited about 45 minutes just to get a seat at this busy sushi restaurant. The fact that there was a long queue outside sparked my interest in this restaurant and we gladly waited in the queue. All I can say is all their sushi were great and unique in terms of the taste...

We had upset stomachs after a visit here. It could have been from the freshness of the fish or the amount of mayo sauce on our rolls. There are a lot of rolls with mayo sauce on them! These rolls are generously big and some sounds very tasty but I'm just wary of how my stomach would feel if I... More

This place is very casual. It has a bar area where you can order and eat your food. We came here on a Sunday afternoon about 1pm. We sat in the booth close to the front door. By the time our food arrived(ordered: salmon teriyaki with tempura and chicken Kara-age; served with white rice; lettuce salad) ; they serve you... More

Have been going to this place for awhile now. Just went again yesterday. Everything was as it is suppose to be. The only downfall is they don't let you change your order around so that was the minus 1 star. Other than that, I will still be coming here. Try this out, you should be pleasantly surprised.

The food is really great!! You get huge portions so you will defintely be full and happy when you're done. It's a decent location; the store front is simple but don't let that fool you. The selection of rolls is almost too much. You will find something you'd like. Try the Number One roll!!!

I'm giving 4 stars because of their huge portions (sushi not the best grade but when you're really really hungry...) and very friendly staff that speak perfect English and joke around with you! The wait is generally long but the prices are cheap with big portions. Rolls rolls and rolls!!!!

The place does´t look very nice, and we didn´t want to enter, but it´s always crowded so it had to be good, and food is really great with good prices, it a mix of oriental sushi, soups, etc, not authentic Japanese, but really healthy, good price, they could clean a little bit more, to have the place to look more...
