The tuna roll was very tasty as were the bam bam shrimp. The tuna entree was superb! What a fabulous meal and speedy service! Make a stop, you won’t regret it!

Normally I'm a little hesitant to try sushi in a landlocked, somewhat isolated locale. BUT, this place is incredible! I'm not sure how they get such fresh fish, but it's some of the best sushi I have ever had! We had the Red Phoenix, Funky...Monkey and Crunchy Mango rolls, which were all out of this world. We also had Tiraditos, which are sashimi cuts with great flavors. I can't recommend this place enough if you find yourself in the Durango area!!!More

Ordered a beef pho and a ginger chicken pho for pickup. Returned home to a very tasty beef pho, but the ginger chicken was actually shrimp and pork, which was not what was ordered. Disappointed in this experience.

Amazing sushi in Durango! Use the app to place your order for pickup for a streamlined experience! Don't wait to late, they close at 8:30, but sometimes get so busy they have to close early. The salmon was noteworthy and the caterpillar rolls were interesting...and fresh! Everything was delicious!More

The pork rolls are worth the visit alone! Great sushi with a menu that covers all the bases. We’ve been over 20 times and look forward to each and every visit.

Stopped for dinner while going through town. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was fantastic! My Unagi bowl was amazing. My son ordered the tuna poke bowl and said it was the best he has ever eaten. My husband enjoyed his beef...pho. We shared an order of fried pork rolls..soooo tasty! Highly recommend!More

Wonderful food. We had spring roll, vermicelli bowl and the funky monkey sushi, everything tasted wonderful. They only have outdoor seating but the service was good even though it was outside

This place has a small outside sitting area in front of the restaurant. One can also get take-away food. I sat there to eat and had Mo as my server. He was very impressive, quick, efficient, friendly. I ordered pork rolls with peanut sauce and...Funky Monkey rolls, as well as a sparking peach Japanese wine that Mo recommended. All was fabulous!More

Excellent teriyaki chicken bowls. Large servings lasted us two meals since we also got the sushi sample platter, which was pretty good too.

Funky Monkey Roll is awesome. Had to takeout because of COVID so no review on the restaurant itself.

The bang bang shrimp is so tasty. We enjoyed the California rolls too! Tried the noodle bowl, shrimp and pork, just couldn’t get into it. The veggie egg rolls were fresh and yummy. Food ready right on time!
