Are here late (plus they serve food late). Atmosphere was not the best and it was dirty. Not many other later night options so we ordered. Food was surprisingly good and our server was very attentive.

Ordered online and showed up at the time their email indicated the food would be ready. Waited 10 minutes before someone even showed up to the front desk. They got my order wrong and then proceeded to not listen to me or believe me when I told them the details of my order. They finally pulled up the online order... More

We come here every time we go to Columbia with our friends and it's always good. Our shumai came out kind of cold but plate was super hot, which I'm guessing it might of been sitting in the window waiting for someone to bring it out. It was still good though. We ordered our food and we did add a... More

Calamari, sushi, tempura or house soup. It does not matter all is splendid. A touch of sweetness is all it takes for me. A small entry can be a full plate or if you are hungry they will accommodate. The deco is modern if you are into the arts. It's all good for the sight.

Restaurant was recommended to us so we were excited to go. Seated right away, but that was only good service of the night. Ordered sushi for daughter and I and hibachi for wife. Sushi came out 40 minutes later. Had to ask for plates. Hibachi followed 10 minutes after that. Don't you bring all food at once? Not sure we... More

I've been to this restaurant 3 times and each time I regretted it! The service is slow and horrible, the hostess are very rude! My honest opinion just drive to Harbinson Tsunami location.

We went here on a Tuesday night. Not a busy night but the food was great and there is a full service bar.

I've been here a couple of times in the past & finally got around to doing a write up. I've always gotten sushi & a miso soup appetizer. Food has always been very good, a little pricey, but well worth it. Depending on the night, the place can fill up. Will always hit this place for some good sushi when... More

This is a fine place to go and get sushi. We thought service was so-so. Lots of choices, and all seemed fresh. Our college daughter and friends eat here often and think it is a great place for sushi. It just didn't "wow" my husband and me.

I loved the Gamecock roll. If you can go for happy hour and get the three select rolls for 10 bucks. Chocolate lava cake is superb. Happy hour martini was mediocre however. Good service. Happening vibe.
