Surprising to think that such an amazing restaurant would be tucked in a small strip mall. This is a hidden gem with outstanding quality and innovative dishes. I began my dinner with Udon soup, which was served hot and large portion of noodles. The Lobster Bomb is a must have and will not disappoint. My Angel was also an excellent... More

Yes, it is in a strio mall but the sushi is freah and delicious. The owner has won tons of awards and she is great. They change their specials all the time on a big chalkboard. They have a full liquor license and serve wonderful scorpion bowls for two. Recently, I had tempura shrimp and udon noodles. The shrimp was... More

Your usual sushi. I prefer Wanokura in Milford over this one which is less gimmicky. I don't understand why this place is popular.

The strip all might fool you, but inside is a trendy, dark, cute restaurant with wonderful sushi and Asian food. It was a great little secret.

My buddy took me here - his favorite sushi place. We were seated right away as the Sun eve crowd seemed to be dissipating. We started with Japanese nachos, a refreshing mixture of fish, onions and a healthy dose of sesame oil served on tortilla chips. Not bad washed down with a cold Ginjo sake. Next up, 2 jumbo rolls,...

I've been there many times now and it has never let me down. We always get a Lobster Bomb to split and then a few other items to split. Definitely get reservations, but it's worth the wait!

The only positive thing was the service. Waitress was extremely nice and pleasant . Coconut shrimp was the worse I ever had. Sushi was below store quality at it's best . Never coming back here .
