The food is average and not so authentic Japaneses food. Service is VERY bad, our attendant kept checking on us and asking if we finish our meal, at one point even took our plate without asking.

My partner and I go here often. Every time it has been most positive. Our server even remembered what we usually order....the sashimi lunch special with extra wasabi. Check it out...you won’t be disappointed.

Just dropped in with my daughter who adores and knows her sushi! She ordered and it was excellent. We sat at the sushi bar. Everything we had was truly scrumptious. Highly recommend this wonderful place.

We were here for lunch and liked it. Having lived two years in Japan, we thought it had the real feel of a Japanese restaurant. The nabeyaki udon was excellent, while the vegetable ramen was on the bland side. The service and decor are excellent.

The Westin Hotel is a hop, skip and a jump away. DO NOT expect good food; we left everything we might have taken home.
