Whenever we go to another sushi spot we always compare it to Gin! We always get salmon collar, spicy salmon hand roll and now to add to our favorites, scallop sushi. Love it! My son always gets the chicken teriyaki with the sauce on the side and edamame. He eats it all up!

The best choice here is to order California rolls or sushi. The salmon entree was awful. The Teriyaki sauce was poured on top of over-cooked salmon and the tempura was greasy. This seems to be a very popular place with locals as it was packed on Friday night with lots of families with children. The service was pleasant. The decor... More

Been here a number of times. The prices are somewhat lower than most of the Sushi places further West, like Takuya or Matsuri. The portions are generous. The downside-the atmosphere, service and reception when you arrive leave much to be improved and the quality of the sushi is not quite up to the level of places like Takuya or Matsuri,... More

I came this restaurant because my friend recommended. Huge disappointment 😔 Sushi doesn't seems fresh. Service ok that's why I gave 3 . I don't want to go back this restaurant. Not worth for $!

Whenever we are in the area we eat here. Sushi is fresh, lots of seating at the Sushi bar and plenty of Sushi Chefs. Our server was pretty inexperienced this last time but otherwise it was all good. Sushi Chefs are always fast and good. This place is always busy.

If you LOVE albacore , you will LOVE this place. The albacore sushi comes w the Best ever Punsu sauce and thinly sliced onions on top. It's the reason I come to this particular restaurant. They also have a really good lobster roll. If you like alcacore, then their albacore salad is a must. Served w a large size scoop... More

Based on one lunch I'd say this is a good reasonably priced sushi spot. Seemed very fresh on a Monday afternoon. I had a combo with some very tasty basic rolls, and their version of sesame chicken. I'm guessing their version is more authentic than a lot of Americanized styles because it was not coated in thick sweet sauce, and... More

I haven't been here for years and I'm so glad my friend reminded me of it. I've been back 3 times over the past few of weeks. The sushi is really good and the portions are huge! For affordable sushi that will fill you up, this is the place to go.
