The sushi is always fresh at downtown location. Boyd comes up with very creative rolls and appetizers that aren't found elsewhere. We enjoy sitting at the sushi bar and chatting with him.

We were greeted with a nice staff, our waiter was nice. Our sushi came quickly after we ordered. It was tasty but wasn't a tight roll, loose. Hibachi time...Our Hibachi cook was white and wasn't entertaining except, when he did say something he used an Asian accent. Lol Mu husbands steak had 8 pieces of fat, you know how the cooks cut it up...He still gave my husband all those pieces of fat. Disgusting! I ordered the sirloin, and he cut the pieces up so small, I almost asked for a tortilla because it looked like guisada meat for a taco. We chose this place for the entertainment factor you expect from a Japanese Hibachi and we were disappointed.

This place was the highlight of my trip to Corpus. I'm not a connoisseur or anything but I eat it regularly and this was some of the best.

Living in Austin, Vegetarian Sushi is a known concept.

Aka, has 3 vegetarian rolls on the menu, which are not at all great
The noodle dish we ordered was with Tofu but kind of smelled like fish (fish oil).
The Service is average.

I liked the location and the ambiance. Good Saki.

Have been here several times. 90% of the time the sushi is excellent, fresh and delicious! There have been a couple of times, however that the sushi was terrible, warm and slimy. Pretty disgusting. Must have been an off day.... it was excellent before so I gave them another chance. Bento box for lunch is very good and filling.
