This is my daughter's favorite restaurant! I don't like sushi but ordered their rice and shrimp. Plenty of food served but I would have liked the shrimp larger than being so small that you couldn't even see them. Other than that, a pleasant lunch.

Greasy sushi tempura appetizer. Big greasy slabs of zucchini, sweet potato, white potato came with it. Main course we ordered a bento-style box which contained more of the same. Sushi roll rice was sub-standard and warm: it is supposed to be cold.

We always eat at this restaurant whenever we come to Amherst. Hadn't been there for 5 years and it was still the same high quality food.

I got the Zirashi, which is just sashimi on a bed of sushi rice, and was only mildly impressed with the overall quality. The fish is fine, but there isn't any wow factor. The sushi rice isn't as sweet and sticky as at other Japanese...More

You want top-notch asian food and you don't want to wait for a table? I've been here at least 10 times, and it has always been good. Not too pricey, with a great selection of Sushi and such. Immediate seating whenever I've been there.
