There aren't many sushi places in Lexington, this one was okay. Over priced for what you are getting, but it is fresh. Service was good. Very clean inside.

Food quality is fine but portions are small and pricey. Strange chemistry among servers, not a comfortable environment and always a sense of being rushed

Daikanyama came back from it's renovation ready to wow, and it has. The dining room is beautiful, though it can be a bit loud when it's really busy. But, where they really shine is in the presentation of the food. Everything is artfully laid out - but not in a fussy way, if that makes sense. Everything arrives at the... More

The fish is VERY fresh, the menu is creative, and the food is always good. Sometimes the service is a bit slow (in comparison to other similar restaurants), but that is because they seem to be very busy all the time. I also notice with each visit (I have been here three times) other customers who are regulars (I can... More

Visiting from the uk for work. Craving sushi. Good reviews here. Food is solid. Nothing amazing but tasty and some fun rolls. I'd certainly come here for quality food and service.

The sushi here isn't bad. They renovated the place last year and majorly improved the interiors. The staff is friendly. Beware though that this place is TEEMING with kids. Parents go there and talk to each other or stare at their iPhones while their kids shriek and bang their chopsticks on the tables and dishes. Not a great place to... More

We went with our one year old. This restaurant probably isn't the most appropriate for kids since it is a nicer place. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly to her though. We just made sure to keep her occupied so that she didn't bother other guests. Sushi was very fresh and delicious.

We live here in town and always feel at home in this wonderful restaurant, newly renovated and expanded with three, peaceful interior waterfalls and more tables, but still the same expertly prepared and delectable food and serene atmosphere. This is where we brings friends and family. We always feel welcome. We are especially fond of Selena, our wonderful and good-natured,... More
