My wife and I went here for a lunch, but we had been delayed and didn't arrive until around 2:00 PM. The doors were open but there was nobody about, customers or staff. Eventually I found the owner (I believe) and he enthusiastically greeted us and assured us we were OK eating there at that time. This set the tone... More

The BEST mackerel sashimi(Chef Kiyen only makes it a few times a year. When he has it you gotta try!) Sushi/Sashimi combo(regular sushi/sashimi combo comes on a plate. If you want a boat, you have to ask for "how much" of a boat you want. In the picture, I think I asked for $50 worth of sushi/sashimi boat). My fav... More

Finally had dinner here. I had a bad lunch experience a while back but really wanted Korean food. SO GLAD I DID. First off, the service was top notch. We ordered bulgogi and bibimbap and received generous portions of both. We stayed and shared some soju. A perfect experience. 감사합니다 (Thank you)

Had a delicious sushi meal - one of the finest we have ever had. Service impeccable and will be returning again and again. The Korean barbecue is also phenomenal. One of the best places to eat in Little Rock

By far this is some of the best sushi I have ever had in life. Pricy but beyond worth it. The customer service was superb too!

I was taken to this restaurant on a date a couple of weeks ago. I had never been there. I love sushi and I have been to a lot of sushi restaurants around town. This was by far the best sushi I have ever eaten. The restaurant was nice and clean and decorated beautifully. I will go there again!

I stopped here after my workout at Orlando's Personal Fitness next door. My trainer Ron recommended it. I got the Orlando's Special. Damn good! Fresh tuna rare, beautiful brown rice, a load of great veggies and a salad. Ate at the bar about 2:30 pm. Quiet and no one really dining which I loved! Come here!
