Four of us met here and ordered a variety of dishes from the menu - some sushi rolls, udon bowls, salads, non-alcoholic beverages and tempura appetizers. On a Friday evening, the service was prompt and attentive, and the atmosphere was comfortable. Lighting and music levels were done well. The sushi bar and actual bar looked attractive and clean. I heard the bathrooms were nice, too.

The food itself was flavored well, and was served at appropriate temperatures. The portion sizes are generous. The timing was efficient between apps and main dishes, and all four of us received our meals within minutes of each other.

I would definitely go back here when in town and recommend it to friends who like this cuisine. Plus, they have creative menu options and much more than sushi, so lots to try!

We searched the internet after a long afternoon driving trip and this restaurant came up and it was close so we took a chance. It is basically in a strip mall...soooo you never know. SO glad we did! The place was upscale & clean (very important to me), the staff was welcoming, efficient & fun! The price of our total night (we had selected their "specials") was awesome! What a deal. The sushi chef made us laugh and his creations were yummy! We almost went back again the night night!

Loved the starter of meat and veggies with sauce in lettuce wraps. Loved the special on Sushi-on Thursday it was buy one, get one free, so it was Tempura Shrimp that was warm and delicious. Our waiter, I am sorry we didn't catch your name, was very nice, and overall, our experience was great there=we'll be back.

What we ordered:
nabe udon & tempura rice, came with salad & miso soup, for total of $25.
Large portions and both were good although I would ask for less sauce on tempura rice.
Restaurant itself was quite spacious and servers were attentive (though that might be because we ate at 2 o'clock)

I went on Sunday night and got but one get one free Sapporo and buy one get one free shrimp tempura with Thai spicy mayo, you can't beat the value when ordering the specials! We also got sashimi and were very impressed, will be back for sure. The waitress was very knowledgable and attentive, she even recommended a place for good Thai food (she is from Thailand)
