Thank you, TA, for pointing me in the direction of Iwayama. My biggest regret was that I was by myself and so unable to try more than two rolls, but enjoyed them both. I can't wait to go back someday. The service was good and...More

First time visit- never noticed location before. Had tempura, a roll and dynamite appetizer. The dynamite was not as good as we get elsewhere but the roll and tempura were excellent. Service friendly.

I don't eat animals but my husband and kids swear this place is the real deal. It's not cheap but the food seems to be great.

Tucked away behind a gas station is an unexpected sushi restaurant that serves Hawaiian food. For your don't do sushi friends, there is a Juicy Lucy cheeseburger and more. How fun is that when you're craving sushi. It gets crowded around 6:30pm in this small...More
