Good location in down town EL, parking is hassle. Sushi is good with a reasonable price compared to others. Clean and friendly staff

The staff is rude and the fish looks like it's been sitting in the case for a few days. I will never eat here again

I really like this place. Good sushi and inventive dishes. The servers are friendly and well trained. I have visited with family about 4 times over the past couple of years and have never had a bad experience.

Was looking for a sushi place for lunch and I'm not sure that I'll look any further. The service was great, food was delivered quickly and it was outstanding.

Excellent sushi, served very quickly and at reasonable prices. I have not had a single specialty roll I didn't like, but if you want the best menu item, just get some simple salmon sushi. I also like that they have a few specialty rolls on sale each day.

This great sushi restaurant is in the heart of Michigan State's campus. Went here with my college son and husband. We had 4 rolls between us and they were all delicious. Exceptionally great amount of unique roll choices, including seasonal rolls with autumn themes. Order the ginseng tea - it is served in a HUGE mug with honey. Just delicious!!

Don't expect big city standards then this place is decent! We had sushi rolls, bento boxes (chicken and salmon teri), tempura and udons (house and seafood). All were ok. Staff was friendly!
