This place is terrible, the waitresses and bartenders are incredibly rude and the place itself is an absolute dump. Do not go here unless you are looking for a terrible time.

We just happened on this place because it was close to our hotel. We did not have sushi. My husband had Kobe beef tartar and it was delicious. He had another appetizer that was OK. I had the lamb chops (not exactly Japanese), and they were quite good, came with rice and vegetable and nice sauce on the meat. Folks would probably love or hate this place. Decor is kind of weird, with white netting around the booths. It was kind of early on a Tuesday, and we were the only customers there. Our waitress was quite nice and attentive. Other reviewers have said the sushi is good, but the regular menu is not strickly Japanese. Prices were very reasonable.
