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.

I visited this establishment on the 4th of May of this year. When I walked in the door it looked like a very modern trendy place and I was excited to see what was on the menu. I waited for quite some time to get a seat, I was standing basically right in front of the hostess and she was... More

Great service. Teriyaki chicken, udon noodles and sushi were all a hit at our table. I liked the bistro, casual feel of the inside space. There are some outside tables as well. Nice places for couples and families w teens. I guess you could bring younger kids, but probably better for older kids. My teens really likes their food. Only... More

Went on a Thursday night. They were not very busy but the service was extremely slow and the food was mediocre. Haven't been back since and don't plan to go back.

We enjoy the upbeat and trendy atmosphere. We are always greeted with hugs and hellos, since it has become our regular spot. I love the dynamite roll, crab crunch roll and squid salad. My other half doesn't like sushi. Dustin, our bartender steered him in the right direction. Now, he always orders the steak hibachi. Whether it's Erin, Dustin, or... More
