Visited the place on a business trip to Tampa and stopped in to have some sushi, the place is very nice inside, well decorated and the food was very fresh. Loved their Ichiban Special, I tried it mixed so was able to taste different rolls. Will be back for a dinner experience.

This was an unexpected and great surprise that we found when we needed a late afternoon snack! 5$ sushi rolls and 2 for 1 drinks!

Family dinner for four and we were provided attentive service. Food was ready in a short time and everything was very good, although we didn't get to order but four entrees on the menu. Would come back here next time we are in town.

I stumbled across this restaurant for lunch while traveling for work. I had an assortment of sushi; a seaweed salad; miso soup; and the other various items that come in their lunch boxes. Everything was great! I highly recommend.

Been there several times when staying at nearby hotel for work and always get take-out. I tried the Salmon Mosey & something? Very good. I have only gotten the sushi and have not been disappointed. Place is a little drab and dark but like I said I get take-out only

I wasn't expecting much even with all of the good reviews, but was pleasantly surprised at how well priced their sushi is (the boxes in particular are a great value). Also, the fish is very fresh, impeccably presented, and served quickly and with a smile.

Excellent food and very friendly service. Owners take a special delight interacting with diners. I've been coming here for two decades and the new owners have carried on the tradition of excellent value, great service and consistent quality.
