I've been coming to this restaurant for years and the food is always good. The portions are ginormous and when they say chunk roll, they mean chunks - big chunks - lots of big chunks. Don't come here expecting an authentic experience, it's certainly an Americanized sushi bar and mosty caters to a non-sushi-connoisseur palate, but it's sort of a sinful way to eat sushi. The fish is usually good, but I wouldn't come here for sashimi, just stick to their special rolls. All in all - you get tons of food for not a ton of cash and it's pretty darn yummy.

One of the best sushi values in town. Great, fresh fish, generous portions and interesting preparations. It can get a bit noisy and crowded and service is sometimes a bit slow, but the food more than makes up for both.

NOisy, noisy, uncomfortable place BUT the sushi is good at a good price. The scallops on the BSCR are huge. A little on the sweet side but still good.

Unique sushi, better for groups, don't sit on the patio if you want to avoid smokers, uniquely served sushi, crappy service
