I used the bathroom shortly after arriving. The Mens bathroom was filthy. This shows a lack of interest in cleanliness and makes you wonder about the cleanliness and organization in the kitchen. Especially worrisome as a restaurant employee was in the bathroom when I went...in and made No effort to clean up. It’s a bad sign. The food was average. We had sushi rolls which were good but not special. I enjoyed the fried bok choy. The ambience is so so. It’s hard for me to recommend a place with filthy bathrooms.More

Came back for the first time since the pandemic started. I’ve been a loyal and frequent customer of this venue for many years. Food was correct. Prices too. Service was average with the exception of a very bad table assistant which seemed to have a...bad night. The problem arised when the bill was brought to the table at my persistent request. The menu said (a translation problem may be?) “service charge is included”. The bill came with a mandatory 18% gratuity. I have tried to explain that tip is voluntary and customary in the range of 15-20%. No understanding was reached. They told me that 18% was a house policy but could not show any written evidence of that fact. Mine is a matter of principle. Gratuity is something you give as a client in proportion to the service received. After a very unnecesary discussion I left the house by tipping 15% which takes into account the good job performed by kitchen and waiters. I would not recommend falling into this “tourist trap” unless they resume normal service and policies.More

Lotus roots are my favorite dish here. Also the fried hog fish. We had a great dinner with sushi rolls, wine, martinis. Great service! Go try!

Sushi is amazing!! So fresh and well done. It is delicious and the service is excellent. Not too happy with the alcohol beverage! It can be better! Other than that recommended

Just resumed dine-in seating appropriately spaced. All I can say is that we couldn’t have picked a better choice for our first venture into a restaurant during Covid. The sushi was simply outstanding and the service top notch. Order the jalapeño yellow tail snapper and...the albacore tuna sashimi - off the charts delicious. We had the Yakko 11 sushi assortment, equally wonderful. We left a huge tip and all of us should pay attribute to great restaurants, wait staff and sushi chefs like this who are trying to survive in this horrible time.More

Very rude unprofessional staff. I tried to use my loyalty club 10% discount card from the app, they declined it and said they saw it first time in life. Also refused to call for a manager or provide me with his contact number to deal...with this situation. Looks like a fraud to me.More

The worst experience of my life. Very disappointed. I ordered fish with vegetable fried rice, among other plates. The fish came without the rice. We asked for the rice to four different people from the staff including the manager. They kept telling that the rice...was on the way and never came. They never apologize for the incomplete order. At the time we decided to leave and asked for the bill and asked to take the fish out of the bill. They threatened to call the police if I don’t pay the bill and I was obligated to pay the full amount. They never apologized for the terrible service and the way they treated us and the manager knew us for many years.More

Japanese cuisine is NOT only sushi. To prove this statement you have to visit this place, near downtown of Sunny Isles, and experience all the variety of Japanese food. Great restaurant!

Though its in a suburban strip mall, the interior is well appointed but very noisy (poor acoustics). Music choice of classic rock is also not that great nor are the TV screen all around the restaurant. Service leaves a bit to be desired (one appetizer...forgotten, had to ask for soy sauce dipping bowls - diners at neighboring table complained to the bus staff that they had been waiting for over ten minutes and no waiter came up). The fish was fresh but some pieces poorly trimmed and the portions were rather small.More

The sushi is good - miso soup is great, but the service is lackluster. Bus staff try to clear table before you are done and wait staff is not always there when you need them.
