Come here every Tuesday!

20% off sushi on Tuesdays means that I've been coming here every Tuesday with a bunch of friends for close to a year. We have tried several other sushi restaurants in the area and have found this to be the best within our price range (cough cough Kokoro). The Boiler Maki has consistently been the... read more

The salmom sashimi was very fresh,and sushi was tasty! But I don't like service at all! There were still many spots opening,the hostess told us to wait for 30min, and then I just got my sushi entree, my waitress put my bill on the table already, looks like trying to rush me! I wasn't very happy, that's why I only... More

In our opinion this restaurant has THE best sushi in the area. It's consistently great, and reasonably priced. The spicy tuna rolls have huge pieces of tuna, the rice is excellent and cooked perfectly. If you like sushi, you need to come here.

Every visit has been great. I typically sit at the Sushi Bar. They take care of me. I had a Crazy and Phili roll this time. Both were out of this world. The Crazy Roll was huge. This is the best Sushi place in Lafayette and West Lafayette.

The atmosphere is friendly as if completely at ease in serving families, but upscale for business and special date dining experience.

I will admit, I ate food there that I've never eaten before & I loved it! Gotta admit, a couple of things I ordered, I wasn't sure if they were dead or not, but you know what, it was always delicious. Plenty of parking. Fantastic hors de oevres. Just off the bypass so easy to find. Yes, I will go... More

Heisei is an authentic Japanese sushi bar with very friendly waiters and sushi chefs. The maki are creative and tasty; the nigiri and sashimi always taste fresh and full of flavor. The other dishes, tempura, meats, and soups are also excellent. Great for a quick lunch or nice dinner.

We always have a great time when we go there. We usually sit at the bar and chat with the Sushi chef, who has been there for almost two decades. It's always busy, expect a 20 minute wait on almost any evening. The food is more traditional Japanese (not the more popular tempura battered everything rolls that seem to be... More

This past Saturday was a bit of a disaster at Heisei. The salad dressing was full of water so there is a half inch of liquid that the lettuce was sitting in. There was no flavor whatsoever because the dressing was simply watered down. The kitchen food came out but for those at our table ordering sushi, their food didn't... More

This place is amazing. The sushi is always fresh and delicious and Jose is always making new rolls for people to try at the sushi bar. Their traditional Japanese menu is very diverse and all delicious as well.
