“Cathy was really sweet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The food was excellent and the service wasn't far behind. The owner came out to say hello and check on our little group a few times. She was very nice.

Give them a try.

“Another Great Place to Eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

With the addition of outside seating, Nancy has really made this a place to enjoy your food, which has always been good. If you're in town looking for good Japanese, this is a place to try. Don't drive to Boone, when you can have it here in Banner Elk. Many of the guests at Banner Haven Bed and Breakfast enjoy eating here and have nothing but good things to say. The Sushi is great and very fresh.

“Love the Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

The owner is very nice. She seated and waited on us. She was full of information about the food and how it's prepared. She took the time to talk to us instead of serving the food and walking away. Great place.

“Just Take Your Food To Go”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

Terrible service. The server screwed up our order on our appetizers and main menu. Service was slow, and at one point the two servers were arguing in the middle of the dining room in their native tongue. My husband accidentally left his prescription glasses sitting on the table, and when we went back the next night to get them, they claimed they did not have them.
