Great service but, very disappointed with our food. Have eaten many authentic Asian foods, and can't say this eatery serve any traditional style of cooking. Prior to going, we were very excited to have a Korean and Chinese foods. Korean foods lacked Korean sauce and flavorings as well as the beef being tough. New Chinese food advertised looked as tasted... More

I rarely find a unique or good place to eat in Columbia. After spotting the unique menu here, we decided to give it a shot and were extremely impressed. The menu was extensive with specialties and interesting combinations. Each of us had two rolls, and each one was delicious. After the meal, the owner came out to talk, make sure... More

Egg drop soup with shrimp tempura is an excellent start. The seaweed salad has a nice kick. And the speciality rolls are creative combinations. The sushi is rolled in the back of the house which is a little disappointing. I prefer to sit at the sushi bar and watch the rolls be made when dining out for sushi. I also... More

If you're wanting really good sushi or oriental food this is your place. The place is nice and clean and a little bit of a nicer feel to the whole scenery. Worth a go and a good menu overall.
