We were staying next door at the Quality Inn and thought we’d try the tempura. Shrimp tempura was on the appetizer menu but vegetable tempura was not. I cannot have shrimp anymore but I love tempura so much that I called to see if they...More

With the age of the building, you might just pass this place right up. However, do not be deceived. This place is where it’s at! They are on the rise, the food was delicious. Service may get a little slow, they are down to only...More

We stayed at the Quality Inn next door, and thought we would get a good meal. I ordered a steak, and got a plate full of rice, a few vegetables, and small portion of beef cubes. Not what I had envisioned for a Japanese steak,...More

The inside and outside are pretty run down, old or dumpy... take your pick. The food was ok, but the orange/yumyum sauce is a deal breaker. I wasn't good.

This place looks old from the outside and isn't exactly new on the inside, but it's clean and the service is good. The steak is good, the sushi rolls are good and the staff is nice. It's just good food in a comfortable atmosphere.

If you like Japanese steak houses you will be disappointed. Soup not hot, salad drowning in dressing. Rice salty and greasy. Veggies overcooked. Chicken overcooked and had hints of freezer or microwave burn flavor, also swimming in butter. Left most on the plate.
