The food was amazing! However our chef was probably better than the food! We had Gabriel for a chef. He was hilarious! When he was cooking the eggs for the fried rice, he started singing "Drop It Like It's Hot". Definitely coming back!

I had the sushi special and the rolls were fresh and tasty. My wife ordered fro the hibachi menu and it food was equally good.... More

I have eaten here on several occasions while visiting DSM. The sushi is always good. Tried the UFC roll this time (which is steak) and it was not my favorite. The other 3 rolls we tried were great. I want to mention the service. Our waitress, Angela, did a great job taking care of us. We also had a couple... More

I had used my debit card at this restaurant Oct 24, 2015. The following Tuesday I noticed a different amount had been deducted from my checking than the amount I had signed for. I went to the bank got a copy of the actual deduction. I also had my receipt. I spoke with the manager and she said these higher... More

We were all kind of disappointed....3 families met for an early supper (4:30 PM) Two of the children, ages 9 and 11 were super excited about the anticipated fun that usually goes on at a restaurant known for it's presentation. Unfortunately the presentation NEVER happened. The food was OK but nothing special....asked for steak to be cooked med. rare but... More

my husband loves sushi and says this is really good for middle america. my kids love the sushi and hibachi too. i think the hibachi taste is average, but the performance is fun and keeps the kids entertained. also, this could be good if you are tired of entertaining your clients or guests:). it gives you a chance to not...

We had a good lunch in a restaurant that has the potential to be so much more. A restaurant in need of remodeling and much more light can step forward "in the future " to be a much better experience. The food was fine, the experience was less. It is not necessarily a "place to go". IHG, Rube

Service was good and prompt. We got refills without waiting. Sushi is very good but the menu does not explain what ingredients are in the rolls. I had no surprise ingredients except to have lettuce in the shrimp tempura roll. The Eel roll was my favorite. We were there on a Thur around 11:30 and it did take time to... More

Restaurant is split into two seating areas for Sushi and Hibachi. Went to Hibachi side which was entertaining, also ordered a plate of Sushi from the other side. Only downside was the waitress who was not engaging at all and a little short with us. That just tempered the whole mood unfortunately. Prices were a little higher than expected for... More
