Went there because the reviews said it was the best Japanese food around. The eggs rolls were just rice, I think. My husband and I both had jumbo shrimp and scallop dinners. Not bad, just very little taste.

The only thing i can say bad is that the portions are small and the prices are high! If you don't mind this please try it out!

The food is ok, much healthier compared to all the other fastfood chains. The sushis a very different as I was used in japan, but still ok for american standards and the loe price. The staff is freezing cool, almost not interested in their guests.

Food here is very good. Got chicken and shrimp and it was some of the best fast food Japanese food I have had. I am picky about rice and they put veggies in it so next time I would ask for plain.
