Amazing food. Wait time was a little long. Lobster was a little chewy but steak and sushi was fantastic!

Sushi on a hot summer day is a blessiong, as was the cool interiour of this beautiful old home. Great service! We had an assortment of sushi, and the sushi chief is a seasoned, tiny woman who creates beautiful sushie. My only concern is that we spent almost $80 for a sushi lunch (one glass of wine each). I would... More

The service is horrible and food is over priced. We showed up 10 minutes before our reservation and I asked to use the restroom, but was told i could not use it. We should have walked out then. As the services only got worst from that point.

I enjoyed the food. Tempura was good but a little bland. My hibachi filet was delicious and so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Price $28 for that size filet with rice, veggies, soup and salad was a deal. So much food I have another meal out of the leftovers. Hubbys Mongolian beef and shrimp Was just... More

Really delicious food! We got the spider roll, Godzilla roll, and spicy tuna rolls. Downsides- wait time and the menu doesn't have the descriptions of the sushi you have to wait for the server to explain it to you

It was the worst sushi I have ever had. Management basically told me " oh well" It's located in an old home. Small eating spaces, and ridiculous prices. Waitress was sweet and very friendly but management not so much. Do not recommend.

Made 5 pm reservations on a Sunday evening and were very disappointed. The place opens for dinner at 5 and no table was set up they had to cram one of us on to the end of the table instead of pushing two tables together. Some may say that was ok but, with sushi too many plates on the table... More

Ever heard of "Midwestern hospitality"? Well, you will NOT find that here! We came in at 11:25AM. Ms. ROLW was on the bar getting things ready. She immediately says, "We're still closed. We open at 11:30." No hello. No, sorry. Just said it loudly & pissed like we came in while she was taking a shower. (We ended up in... More

We go here every time we're in Lake Geneva. We've ordered the Crab Rangoon, Bento Box, Shrimp Hibachi and more, and everything has an exquisite taste. Fresh and delicious, with an added pop. The miso soup is amazing, the tempura is light and so good, everything is perfect, including the very nice and attentive waitress. Give it a try.

I had tempura with shrimp and scallops. It was awesome!!!! Dinner came with rice, soup and salad. The rice bowl was kinda small. My daughter had crab Rangoon which was great also. I will eat here again when visiting Lake Geneva.
