Found this place while cruising the mall. Hit it at happy hour... $4 sushi rolls and $3 sushi or sashimi. Staff was attentive and nice, decor low key and inviting.

The Tampa Roll is fantastic. It has a perfect blend between soft and crunchy. Edammae was cooked perfectly.

Ducked in here one evening before it stormed, and caught the tail end of happy hour. My server was attentive and helpful in letting me know there were still 15 minutes left! I got a variety of items (wine, appetizer, and 2 rolls), and with the happy hour pricing, it was all incredibly priced. Sometimes when dining solo, servers aren't... More

I had the Zen Crunch roll which was $8. I thought it was okay. It was a really small roll. Customer service was okay. Service was really slow and they weren't busy.

We stopped in here during a recent visit to Tampa. Food was excellent, when we finally received it. The food took at least 45 minutes and we only ordered sushi - and the restaurant was not busy at all as we were having a late lunch. Place was modern, had TV's and had good ambiance, the service was just really... More

My lunch experience was not that great. We arrived for an early lunch on a week day. It was not busy at all. In fact, we were the only people there. The atmosphere was dreary. That could be because they are located in a corner part of Bay Street that doesn't get much natural sunlight. My first impression may have... More

We had lunch during our shopping spree at the International Plaza and were overwhelmed with the great food! The variety of choices was amazing. There were salad bowls, sushi combinations, sashimi, rice, everything. We were very happy with our choice!

My wife had the honey walnut chicken and loved it. I had chicken fried rice. Also a good solid meal. All white meat, not overly soy sauced. Service was great. All in all, can't say anything bad except the portions were too big.

I went here not knowing if they had a gluten free menu, which they do. I had already planned to eat sashimi so thats what I ordered. I had the eel, the salmon, and yellowtail sashimi. They do have tamari also. The sashimi was some of the best that I have had. It was cut perfectly and it was nice... More
