Now, this is a place we visit regularly...5-6 times a year. Just want to add, its great sushi for the price, they are eager to please, great service and great value for the experience! And, a very cold martini!

Great service and wonderful food! Massive quantities of sushi and tempura soba. We ate out on the patio for a lovely evening out.

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.

We went hoping for the great suikiyaki enjoyed a couple years ago. They have changed owners have new menu. We had fantastic tempura and the samurai salad. They were both excellent. The salad was combination of crab shrimp mango and avocado. Will definitely go back.
