My friend made us a reservation at this restaurant for our group several weeks before we came to Galena. We were running a few minutes late so my friend called to let them know, they said it was fine that our table was going to be ready in 7 minutes. When we arrived they said they were getting our table... More

First off, I don't eat sushi, so this is not a review about sushi. look at some else's review for that. I love the chicken hibachi; never had it when it was not perfect. It is a huge plate of stir fried chicken breast, vegetables and fried rice, proceeded by soup and a simple but always crisp and fresh salad.... More

Had the chicken tempura dinner. Very little chicken, a few vegetables and a lot of tasteless tempura batter. No seasoning at all except a little ponzu sauce on the side. Maybe we ordered the worst thing on the menu but it was one of the worst meals I've ever eaten.

If you're used to a big fancy sushi restaurant, this place won't jump out at you. However, the fresh sashimi is amazing! The salmon and tuna are delicious and melt in your mouth!

We're pretty much connoisseurs of sushi, and I confess (shamefacedly, now) that I wasn't expecting to encounter world-class Japanese food in Galena, of all places -- I mean, 1) it's landlocked, and 2) the other food we'd had throughout the weekend (at other top-rated places in Galena) had proved disappointing. Apparently we unwittingly saved the best for last, though. We... More

My husband and I went for lunch last week. The food was delicious, fresh and the presentation was beautiful! My husband had the lunch sushi sampler and I had the chicken tempura which also came with tempura vegetables both were great! If your in the area give this place a try (I also noticed several locals eating there and getting... More

A few co-workers and myself stopped to have some sushi as an appetizer before dinner and we LOVED the sushi. We had the Devil Roll and the Summer Roll. Amazing!! Would definitely go back and we highly recommend it.
