Every single time I come here the food is amazing, no matter what I or anyone else orders. Great oblong tea, appetizers, sushi, dinner entrees, salads or anything else you might want.

A nice variety of sashimi, sushi and makis. The prices might be a little too expensive but worth it when you feel like a good Japanese food in Columbus

They are located just next to Japanese supermarket.They serve whole variety of Japanese cuisines. We were a party of four, and four of us ordered different things. They were all good. I would come back.

Food quality is good - certainly for the area. The place is always crowded, typically with Asians (like me), so that is a good sign. I was in town for a conference, and was staying in the area. My first dining experience here was in 2014, and it was good, so I returned.

Amazing sushi, delicate tempura, delicious wakame and exotic saki. The sushi was first rate. We used to enjoy Lemongrass, but to be honest, the quality has taken a nose dive. The tempura was delicate and used a nice selection of vegetables. The wakame (seaweed salad) was some of the best I've tasted, and the unfiltered sake was amazingly smooth and... More

This place makes the best sushi ever. The sushi is so fresh, does not have a fish taste, it is just perfect. The ginger is always fresh too. This place is our guilty indulgence. Our English Cocker gets the fish roe sushi and goes wild when we bring it home.

The sushi here is top notch. A little known fact, if you visit Tensuke market next door, they have the same sushi for sale to go as prepared by the chefs! Do your self a favor and get the sampler boat!

Had not been back to this Japanese restaurant for many months and not sure why. The atmosphere is really nice and best of all the sushi was excellent and food selections are really good. Service was quick and attentive.

located in a suburb of Columbus in a strip mall nearby a japanese grocery store, bakery, and novelty shop, I was impressed by this place that is legit. The seafood bowl was delicious and authentic.

This bustling restaurant is a wonderful choice for well-made, well-presented Japanese food. Service is friendly, quick and efficient. Ingredients, including the super-fresh sashimi, are first rate. Luncheon specials, like a variety of grilled fish or a choice of bento boxes, are well priced. The dinner menu, including a handful of Korean items, is extensive, with plenty of choices for meat...
