“Atmosphere, Food, Service”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The restaurant is immaculate and not the typical red and gold ornate oriental food place. Lovely woods and pastel lighting set a very relaxing atmosphere. The service was friendly and timely. The food was presented in square bowls that were sectioned to keep food separated and fresh. It came in generous portions and was hot and tasty to the table.
I am definitely going back!

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We just loved this place!! Great service, great food! I am not very big on Asian food but have been totally swayed by the food here. I also loved the decor, everything was so clean and pretty.
Another thing was how friendly everyone was.Smiles all around! Joy

“Seriously Gone Downhill....”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has become terrible! Service is poor, food is bland, and it's appears to be the area where children are babysat by staff while trying to work. It will not be on our restaurant list any longer. So disappointing.

“One of best in Ellsworth.”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

First time for me and I was impressed. Exceptionally clean dining room and great decor greet you when you come in, cleanliness is very important to us and this place is squeaky clean. Service was top rate as was the food, glad to see a class restaurant in the Ellsworth area! No doubt we will dine here again when we return to the Ellsworth area. Highly recommend!

“An exception to dress down casual”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Not the corner "#1 Chinese Restaurant" ! As a local and a Chef, we frequent it as our first choice place to go.

First -- It's primarily Japanese. The decor is traditional & very well done. The dining room is 5-star clean. The service is exceptional. Rarely is there a wait for seating.

Onto the food... heavenly by all standards. It smells great, looks like a work of art... and is extremely well prepared. These people truly take pride in what they do much like a craftsman.

Now if I could only pronouce their names to reciprocate equal respect they show for me!!!
