The sushi is excellent. The kitchen food is good but the menu is a little small. A great place to have dinner before a movie.

We just had lunch at this restaurant. The bento box is a great deal, it provides a variety of excellent food and its price is reasonable. The shrimp tempura, salmon teriyaki and sushi were top notch. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I love this place, the sushi is awesome and great portions. I average once or twice a month going there and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is super friendly and very attentive to the customer's needs.
