We've been coming for dinner every time while in town for years. We love the food, the hibachi especially, and we were sad to see the sign about the restaurant closing in September. But, we were happy we'd get to eat there one more time....More

For Food and Ambiance details, see the other reviewers: Both were very good! Many reviewers said the service was bad and sure enough, it was for us as well. But, in our case we got stuck with a bad server. We arrived early in the...More

The food here is good. Stereotypical Japanese food that was served quickly. Yet the INSANE prices ($16 for some sushi rolls...no way) and the awful service made it not worth the food one bit.

The food is delicious and the decor is Victorian meets Asian. We often do take out because the floor plan is a little cramped. Family ownedyou will often se Pi and Mama cooking and rolling sushi, and they remember regular customers.

We lunched here mid week and had a delightful experience. The lovely sunny porch dining area provided a very pleasant ambiance. Egg roll was delicious. Beef hibachi and shrimp tempura were tasty, but, unfortunately, there were more veggies than either beef or shrimp in the...More
