We had lunch/dinner and the food was great. The service was also great. It's located in a nice area with other options but this place had great sushi.

No, I am not Japanese; I just used a Google translator for this. A business person arranged a meeting and lunch here, and I have driven by it many times with little thoughts about trying it. Once seated, I found the menu to be extensive, the décor pleasing, and the waitress accommodating. I chose a chicken hibachi meal. It was... More

The walls say "Japanese" but the infernal racket says "State College ". The place was packed with people having a good timeThat said, there is an extensive sushi menu as well as tempura and hibachi (cooked in a kitchen, not table side) meals. As is usual salad and soup comes with a full meal. Perhaps because of the day (moving-in... More

The lunch special Monday-Friday is super cheap and you get plenty of food. Best sushi in state college.

Despite the previous reviews, we decided to come here for lunch. The place was quite busy and the service we received was attentive. We had seaweed salad, sashimi dinner and a bento luncheon box. The soup is very good with tiny bits of tofu. The bento box included California roll, rice, choice of entree(chicken katsu in this case) and 3... More

Had a hibachi dinner, portion was small. For same price as the hibachi grill across town, I got just over half the food with no show (here it is prepared in kitchen). My whole family was disappointed overall and the prices are definitely higher than other similar local fare. Relative likes the sushi there and I might someday try that.... More

Enjoyed a family meal in December. The food was well prepared, if a little pricey, but there are not a lot of other Japanese options in town. Service was OK; the restaurant was cold inside on a chilly evening.

I stopped for takeout on my way home from work. Regardless of the grumbling sounds coming from my stomach, I couldn't eat it. I ordered Orange Beef and got Orange Chicken. The chicken was bland and chewy. The sauce tasted more like ketchup with sugar dumped on it and the broccoli was old, brown, wrinkly, and rancid. I'll certainly think... More

I've only eaten here once, but was very impressed with the variety and delicious taste of the sushi. Went with friends and we all ordered something different to try it out.

Good food, choice of Japanese and Chinese entrees. Fried rice was great. Bring your own cork opener to avoid cork fee :-)
