And the service was good. The sushi is pretty but the food in general is kind of bland. I had the general tso chicken and it looked beautiful but frankly the trader Joes frozen orange chicken has more flavor. I wanted some spice and maybe broccoli..anything. I have had hibachi here also and it was very tasty but the cook... More

I've been reading the good reviews for this restaurant and finally tried it last night. It was a disappointing visit for sure. The service was fine but the food was just fair. I had the duck-which came out as a bowl full of mush. My wife had the General Tao's chicken. Boring and flavorless. We had a child with us... More

What a wonderful and delicious find! The sushi lunch was more than I could eat. 7 fresh, good-sized pieces of sushi, a California roll, miso soup, and a salad for less than $12. Yummy Scorpion bowl for $10. The place has great ambiance and the staff is friendly and attentive! This restaurant deserves a return visit, and another, and another...

We went here for lunch on a Monday in April, and the food was very good. I had the hibachi chicken lunch (with soup and salad), and my wife had 3 sushi rolls from their lunch menu. For the quality of food we received, it was a good price.

We had an early dinner there. The menu in the main dining room was filled with different fare than your normal restaurant. ( alot of sushi choices ). Fairly expensive. Slightly dark and loud atmosphere, (not quite like a club, but heading that way).. it wasn't a bad experience, but not anything to make me come back again either. .

Kon Special Rolls - you can't go wrong. They are all good. Add Crazy Tuna and a couple of Mai Tai and, if there's still room, get the Green Tea fried ice cream You won't be disappointed. Always great service Always good!
