Great place to gather with family and/or friends. We went with 3 other couples and we had a blast. The service was great and the chef was awesome.

Food is great. Service excellent... sometimes too much people for a small kitchen, but the quality is amazing.

We ordered a variety of sushi, sashimi, and hot foods. From the $7 eel roll (6 pieces) to the $20 galbi dish to the $55 two-person sashimi boat, the food was caloric but not flavorful. The prices must be due to the high rent for...More

Now with three locations In Newport News,Hampton, and our newest Richmond! We are proud of our staff and chefs for all they work towards requires extensive experience, extraordinary skill, and respect for the spirit of traditional Japanese cuisine. Encounters with seasonal ingredients stimulate our senses and inspire us to craft exquisite works of art for your plate. It is our daily delight to serve you, your family, and friends simple, elegant, beautiful Japanese works. When we opened our Newport News restaurant in City Center it was to continue in the tradition Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar with a nod to the updated look you might find in an upscale metropolitan restaurant. We also opened our doors in the Hampton area, located in Peninsula town center and offer a more eclectic contemporary non hibachi dine in grill and sushi bar experience. I hope we can continue to grow and share our wonderful experiences and passion with you.
