“1st Time Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

This was the 1st time I was able to get my family together for sushi. My brothers family had taken us here. What a great experience. Relaxed not pretentious, food was stelar. The seaweed salad was exelent and the benkay rolls were crisp and had a very good flavor. Both the Miso and Wonton soup were also good. The only thing that I could have impove was the spicy scallop roll, my brother said it was not as good as normal. He eats here regularly, and has never had a bad meal. Enjoy!

“EXCELLENT !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

This Sushi is one of the best we've ever had. The portions are very generous and the service very friendly and helpful. When we were ordering, the very nice waitress told us that it would probably be too much for us and so we removed one dish. And she was right. The dishes were so good, prepared perfectly and the portions were more than enough. We will definitely go again.
