We have regularly passed this establishment, sometimes daily, but have never given it a try, and we are sure happy that we did today. The marquee proudly announced "Flying Crawfish", so we just had to ask. Well, it is one of their Sushi specialties, for those love Sushi. I prefer my Sushi southern fried. The lunch menu was not extensive,... More

Love the food here. Can get a lot of food for not a lot of money, good value. Sushi rolls are great.

Hibachi is no longer an option. Service is very slow and the food isn't so great that it's worth the wait. Edamame lacked salt. Sushi was ok but nothing spectacular. California roll didn't taste fresh. Pepper steak was good. Noodles are good. But overall it's no longer a top Lafayette restaurant.

You have got to try the sweet fruit rolls!!! It sounds bizarre but is a divine dinner dessert in one! Their ginger dressing is so good sometimes I request a container to go. Oh and the jazz roll ...get it and request the peanut sauce...jazzy combination!!

We went here on recommendation from a friend who used to live in Lafayette near this restaurant. I was in the mood for sushi and can be particular about it. There were not many customers here the evening we visited (sometimes that's an indication), so we were not sure what to expect. But what a wonderful surprise! It is a... More

I used to love the Chinese food here! It was one of the best, well, nobody beat Golden China back in the day. The atmosphere is nice, but the Chinese food is lacking. I ordered a simple plate of vegetable lo mein, and it tasted reheated from some earlier preparation. Not the way to go, guys! Also, it was a... More

Great place to stop after a long day of work for their happy hour. Sushi is good with some nice Cajun selections.

Went on a Wednesday at sushi happy hour and that's exactly what I became! Had DELICIOUS veggie sushi prepared by the nicest most careful sushi chef ever named Hung and pronounced Hawng. Started with a delightful cucumber salad which is free then had two veggie sushi rolls and edamame is free on Wednesday during happy hour. Had a lovely orange... More

Making excuses over and over for poor service does not make lot service any better. Food may be good yet when you make reservations and told it will be 30 minutes for a chef it makes one a bit cranky.
