I go there quite often as the quality of the fish is way above the average. Pricing is very affordable, quite nice even the environment even tho hasn't been renovated in years. Generally speaking is probably the best place to go for sushi or sashimi in the area.

I like the spicy tuna hand roll, and the sashimi bar well worth the visit. The fish is fresh, and the cooked dishes are well made and very well presented

Okay the food was alright but not remarkable, I was moved to the grill area the girl who served me and cooked my meat at the grill was nice. But I can't say the same for the guy hence the management needs to work on his smile and enthusiasm. The food chicken liver and beef I believe, was unremarkable. But... More

Crispy maki is great -- mixed textures, subtle flavor. Tempura is great too. Not a big fan of the ramen; was expecting the chashu pork to be more thinly sliced or like the others we've tried that almost melts in the mouth, noodles quite hard, quite "instant noodle"y...Chicken teriyaki, quite a small portion for the price but tastes very good....

The food wasn't tasty, not for me and not for my friends. The sushi roll was made by amateur kid. And when I asked teriyaki on the said they changed me for 50 peso!!! 1/4 of sushi roll!!

We went with a group of about 8 to 10 people. The restaurant was essentially empty but then again it was raining real hard outside. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food order was taken and served within a short period. The beer was cold. The price for the meal was very affordable. We will be sure and... More

This is another one of my favorite places to eat. There is a lot of new staff in the front of the house, but the back of the house is still putting out great food. In the front they are growing a slow in clean up, and this is during the busy times. But still a favorite on mine.
