“Excellent Soups”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Authentic Japanese soups expertly prepared and modestly priced. Haven't tried their other dishes because the soups are too good pass up.

“Good sushi, average staff.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The sushi here is actually very good. Even my Japanese coworker said so. And it's not too expensive. The staff tho can be a bit careless and seem uninterested. The owners are very nice on the other hand.

“Great value”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I've visited many times and while it is not the best sushi restaurant in the city, their portions are large and for $22 you can a fresh meal. I typically have sushi dinner B. The staff is friendly, the green tea is free and if you want some privacy, simply ask for a room in the back of the restaurant. This is a family run restaurant that's been around for years. If you want to go for lunch they typically offer a lunch special weekdays. Don't expect too much, it is not a fancy place to take a date but their fish tends to be fresh since they have lots of people visit at lunch.

“Simple but good!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

A simple menu with no pretensions but expertly executed. Everything was good from the miso to the teriyaki. The service was great and there were nice touches like a tofu amuse-bouche that was surprisingly good.

“Very fresh and well cut sashimi/sushi”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The only problem we encountered with this simple and traditional Japanese restaurant was the little variety of sea food they used on our sushi/sashimi combination platter...3 fish varieties and some scallop..no shrimp,eel,octopus etc.,even if they were visible and available at their counter.It got boring after a while since we ordered their"boat"which is enough for at least four to feast on.
The soft shell crab was great!
