“Good food but service is lacking”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had dinner for the first time here on Saturday night at a friends urging. First of all I know this is a local restaurant and gets good reviews. But our experience was not great. The food was good, nice roll, nice salad, nice tempura soup. The problem we had was getting the waiter and waitress to get everything to the table together. We asked for water and that didn't come so we had to ask for it again. We had soup but no spoons and then finally got them. We had a sushi roll but not plates or small bowls for the wasabi. We had ordered edamame but it didn't come until we were almost done with dinner. So I would say that the food is good but the service can definitely be spotty. So if you go to this restauant be prepared to ask several times for things that you have ordered. Other than that it was ok, but we won't be going back. We have been going to Mana's restaurant for years and it definitely shines compared to this place. Hopefully they'll get better but they've been in business 10 years so who knows.

“Good no nonsense sushi”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

Great casual dining with friendly staff in a neighborhood joint. Too bad they aren't open later on week nights.

“If you like fresh Oysters and you can't get to the ocean go here!”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

This place is a surprising find in Carmichael. We ened up here when our favorite, and one of only a few sushi places, closed in Carmichael. Searching for a good local sushi place on my phone this place popped up on Google Maps. It had good reviews so we thought we would check it out. We lucked out. Every Friday they have fresh oysters, and we happened to be there on a Friday. The oysters are small northern Ca ones brought in fresh that day. They only have them on Fridays. You order them individually at $2.00 a piece. They are served raw on the half shell and come with a delicious seasame/soy type sauce. The sushi is very fresh and they will make to order anything you like. On our first visit there the waitress was very helpful in finding options that were similar to what we like to order at the other place.

It is a surprising find in that is located in a strip mall in suburbia. It is small and not a fancy, but the staff is very friendly. They obviously have a lot of regulars as you can tell by the greetings they give the customers. Sometimes the service can be a bit slow and they can be forgetful about your order once in awhile. However, the fresh oysters and sushi make up for this. When they do make a mistake they are always very polite and accommodating.

“Great Sushi Rolls!!”
Reviewed February 20, 2009

I took my fiancee out for dinner here for his B-day... We are big sushi lovers and are always on the lookout to find good sushi... We were pleasantly suprised by this little sushi neighborhood restaurant in Carmichael. The rolls were excellent, bite size, great selection and the waitress was very helpful in her recommendations... The sashimi was was also excellent!! Very fresh... It can get a little noisy since the place is a little small and can get packed.
