Great food, but the service can be slow and the tables feel a little sticky with grease, or I would give them 5 stars. We enjoy ordering ahead for take out.

This place was amazing. Got a few different types of sushi and yellow fin tuna meal to go! Wish they had one around us.

Very consistent flavor and tastes. Not a bad place for a break in a community that seems to live on Mexican Food! We know it is not for everyone, but you really think out of the box, or in the Bento box here!

We were the only customers in the restaurant. All of the food was tasty but the chicken tasted like metal and had grizzle. I would go back but wouldn't get the chicken. The food would go from good to excellent if they used chicken breast...More

Fresh food.... Good flavor. Friendly service. Generic decor, but we will ever back. Unexpectedly good for a small cowboy town.

Really how can you serve Sushi without Miso soup? Well they do it here... The Sushi isn't creatively made and sometimes the fish isn't the freshest.. Sadly we won't be going back..

I have eaten here a couple of times and each time the food is so good. The Tempura is very good.. They have a large variety of things on the menu it is hard to decide what to order. Very friendly servers.

They have good food and their prices aren't too bad. They don't use real crab in any of their rolls which is a bummer because fake crab really changes the flavor of a good California roll or other items on menu.
