This place has the best service out of all sushi restaurants. Their servers respond quickly customers. The servers also also usually provide a couple of appetizers for free.

Their handrolls and sushi are super delicious. All their fish is super fresh and they put seasoning on the fish before serving it. I would warn people who don't like wasabi to specify their orders without wasabi. Their specialty sushi rolls have funny names.

We were skeptical of this restaurant since it's in a stripmall and doesn't look like much from the outside. When you walk in the atmosphere is great and it's really authentic though; we were very pleasantly surprised. The food and sake were all amazing. Get the samurai burrito and you will not be disappointed!

Great friendly sushi bar with excellent sushi to go with it.... Do not be put off because it is located in a generic strip mall.....Just step inside and you will forget! Great service and the sushi is fresh! Prices are more than fair and they give lots of extra foodies to make you feel special!

We were looking for a good quick lunch after landing at the airport and found this little gem in a strip mall. Very fast and fresh with some unusually named and delicious rolls like #15 Me soy horny (shrimp tempura, cucumber and avocado inside with spice tuna on top). We also had tuna sashimi and it was very fresh. Highly recommended.

Being from San Francisco, I'm kind of snobby about sushi. But I tried out this place, because it's within walking distance of the Ayres on Bristol. The service was warm and friendly, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fish – always evident when you order sashimi. The hamachi was silky and wonderful.
