I had not been here for many years, but it is still as good as I remembered. Had sushi rolls, sashimi, appetizers. The only thing we didn't like were the drumstick appetizer. Just not very flavorful. Waitress was great. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations. Be aware that you may end up sitting very close to the couple next to you. This can be a bad thing when she has on too much perfume!

My friend and I had never been there but met friends that had. I can't speak on what they had,but I know they had the Rock, some sort of roll, and some dumplings and enjoyed them. We had the asparagus roll, the Hamachi roll, and the Salmon Tuna Tuna roll. They were excellent. We also had the orchid martini and it was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Great Great Food! Excellent service, way better than reviews as recent as mid Feb 13. They must have made some improvements.
Our table was one of 11. My best friend was served his main entree 20 minutes after everyone else was served and he had ordered Sushi. Our server made up for it with a round of drinks...after that I forget!!!

Went there in a large group,with a preselected menu served family style.... I thought some items were good and some just ok. Not the easiest way to judge given large group setting. The ambience was nice and service was helpful.
