“Ok”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I came here for my second time with my boyfriend to use a gift card we had received, and we were more "wowed" with the food the first time we came here a few months ago. This time around we ordered the house salad with Japanese ginger dressing (always a hit), 2 orders of the fried shrimp shumai (had it fried for the first time the last time, and it was amazing!), caterpillar roll, crazy maki, spicy tuna maki, and spicy salmon maki. The rolls were pretty good, but the spicy tuna and spicy salmon rolls were a little too overstuffed. Call me crazy for thinking this, but the fish was also a little too mushy as well. For drinks my boyfriend ordered an old fashioned rum drink (just rum with a large ice ball) and I ordered the peach sorbet bellini, which is very good. Overall, this place did not lure me in enough for me to say that we would definitely come back here.

“Cool atmosphere”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We got the tour of the restaurant as we walked all the way to the top and back of the place. It's got a bunch of rooms that make it a more intimate dining experience. The menu was enormous! Lots of great options for dinner! I would have liked to see more fresh sushi, they had a lot of stuff that was fried or had spicy mayo on it. The stuff we had was definitely good though! Worth the stop!

“Huge Restaurant, Very Good Food!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

I came here with my boyfriend after receiving a $200 gift card. My boyfriend ordered a Sapporo, and I ordered the peach Bellini that had sorbet in it which was a nice treat! We ordered the fried shrimp shumai and the oysters (only has 3 in the order!). We had never had fried shumai (just steamed before), and we LOVED it fried--incredibly delicious. We are both big oyster fans, but didn't like this dish. They were very small (for the price!), and it had a mixture of basil and watermelon in it. I wouldn't order this dish again.

For our sushi we ordered a couple of different ones, all very good. Overall it was a nice experience. The actual restaurant is like 3 levels, and seemed to be never ending as we were led to our table.
