I enjoyed the rancho and specialty baja roll. I like spicy food and these rolls did the job. Onion soup was good too.

Don't waste your time or money going here when there are so many much better places to get Japanese food. How can you serve burned gyoza? - they did. And you should NEVER get sushi rice wrong. Mine was so sloppy it was falling out of the seaweed wrap is was in - not good. And the batter on the "tempura"??? NOT tempura batter that's for sure- it would have been forgivable I suppose if it tasted any good. We all know good Japanese fare these days, don't we? Well you won't find it here.

This local sushi bar is always packed, which means that the sushi and other dishes are usually very fresh. The sushi chefs are no more than roll makers and they aren't any more Japanese than I am. That's the problem. Still, in a pinch, I go there and I demand that someone make me sushi.

We have been here 20 times. It is less crowded now than four years ago. The food is quite good. The atmosphere is loud. Ambiance is poor unless you like crowded small tables and lots of TVs. But there is a good sushi bar. The full meals like steak with shrimp kinda Bennihana's style is excellent. Sushi tacos are good.
