Good sushi, but crowded and the place is in a basement. Great service with smiles!

“OK sushi, but nice for kids”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Stopped for lunch on a road trip. Staff was friendly and they had a kids' sushi menu, which was nice, but it was a bit overpriced for your average sushi. When the sushi chef is a 21-year-old white guy with his baseball cap on backwards, you don't expect too much.

“Best Sushi in town....”
Reviewed April 3, 2011

...period. Out of like two places, but still. There are some great restaurants in Hood River and this place stands out, that's a big deal. Plus, because of the region, they often have fresh, delicious oysters, which is a super bonus. High quality, fresh sushi and the staff is awesome, very friendly. They make an out-of-towner feel like a local. I will always make it a point to come here when in Hood River.

“My favorite place!”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

The enviroment is always amazing, people are so friendly. The staff is always so helpful. Sometimes it does take a while to get a seat because they are so busy. They have a wonderful variety. I've gone there many times and will continue to go there in the future.

“Great Selection of Vegetarian morsels.”
Reviewed June 20, 2009

So many sushi restaurants are rather lackluster when it comes to supplying meat free choices, this place however had more than enough options for a decent feast. Service was nothing to write home about. Was left standing at the door for ages and told to wait a little longer by perhaps the manager as the hostess was upstairs, even though there was ample room at the bar.
