We had a delicious meal of udon noodles. They were made nice and chewy. For desert, they have a great selection of Mochi ice cream; strawberry, chocolate, green tea and mango. The wait staff and owner are very accommodating.

We were staying with friends in Orange, who have been going here for years. The sushi was very fresh and a good variety of different rolls. We had takeout only due to our 6 month old needing to be in bed!

Right in Rt34 by the Yale bowl so easy on and out. Nice place inside very nice staff. Sushi was average. The tuna seemed a bit fishy. I still liked the place and would come back

See comments for Jerry's San's. Same exact place - not sure why this place has 2 separate entries. Rich to sushi ratio is off, anything besides salmon & tuna is not fresh or quality. Had seafood stir fry noodles and wow that was disappointing. I make better stir fry noodles at home. They basically dump soy sauce on blanced noodles... More

We did takeout (family's regular) the night after Thanksgiving. The sushi dishes were wonderful; the ginger-fried chicken had no detectable ginger and was just a tad overlooked. Overall, this is a great and reliable place for Japanese takeout.

Best sushi in the New Haven area. Been coming for years and sushi is fresh, atmosphere inviting and pleasant and other food on the menu is equally good.

We have been going to Jerry Sans (Daiko) since they opened. Their food, especially the sushi, is always of the finest quality and is always fresh. They have unusual sushi specials every day. They have an extensive menu - I especially love the Sukiyaki and the Tempura. They greet you with a warm towell to soothe and clean your hands... More
