“Excellent authentic Japanese Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

If you have never tried sushi before, then this is the restaurant for you. Our kid's had never tried sushi and we wanted them to experience a cultural Japanese dish. Not only did they enjoy their food, but the whole family enjoyed the ambiance of the private rooms and excellent service. It is a very busy restaurant on Friday nights, so you need to reserve or go before the dinner rush. We have been there a few times when we have visited the city, and we will go back again.

“Sushi Yum!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Good size portions and so delicious, staff is great and it has the booths that you take your shoes off to sit cosy inside. Very intimate and the tempura is my favorite.

“Not the best service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

The food is very average. There are lots of other Japanese restaurants in town that serve up some excellent food. The service here is pretty bad. We were there 3 nights ago. Dinner for 3 came within 10 minutes. No plates or cutlery. Asked several times - nothing showed up - finally 15 minutes later 3 plates arrived and one was not washed. Still no cutlery to eat with or serve the food. I went wandering around the restaurant looking for some thing - finally came across some spoons on a cart sitting in a corner. Was given our bill 10 minutes later - still no new clean plate or cutlery. Waitresses don't speak very good english - no apology given - not even a little concerned that they didn't provide us with a third plate. Never going back here again.

“Our First Choice for Japanese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

This restaurant has always been our first choice for Japanese, we sit at the bar and love to watch the food being prepared, asking for new suggestions and always surprised - the staff are so friendly, the food and presentation amazing and the prices so reasonable.
