My husband and I had dinner here which we thoroughly enjoyed. We started with a tuna and salmon Maki roll -- so fresh! My husband had the sweet and sour pork, which was also fresh and delicious. I ordered the salmon, which was simply amazing.

The sashimis are one of the best I've ever had, so fresh! Got deep-fried shrimps with rice. Large portion. Sweet and sour sauce is pretty basic tough.
