We came, we saw and we ate. Our drinks were served swiftly, and we (two adults and two teenagers) were presented with soup and a nice salad off charge. The main course was delicious. The quality of the food is really great. Especially the moist of the rice was just perfect. We all went for sushi, and shared three different... More

Our family had a nice sushi dinner at this family run Japanese restaurant. Don't be alarmed, most of the shopping center is vacant. The sushi quality was good and fresh. They best part was the pricing was very reasonable. You'll save a lot of money and get equal or better sushi compared to the big chains. We felt they could... More

Don't be fooled by the way this place looks--it's in a practically deserted plaza and it is very small. The sushi is fantastic! We ordered the sashimi and some assorted rolls, including the Rainbow, Spider, Philadelphia and Spicy Tuna (which was hot--good hot!). All were delicious and fresh. Our server was very nice and our food came out quickly. We... More

I have to say I went to visit this place after someone at the hotel recommend it to me. At first I was very skeptical since the place is in a run down Plaza. I have to say the food was good. It's a very small place only sits like 25-30 ppl tops but the food was good. There is... More

We were delighted to learn that our favorite Japanese restaurant is open again!!! We have been long-time diners at this authentic Japanese restaurant which serves delicious sushi and meals. Recently, the sushi chef suffered from appendicitis so the restaurant was closed until he recovered. We have tried many of the entrees on their menu and have enjoyed going back time... More

It was a great restaurant! I went in for dinner and saw many Japanese guests which was comforting because it proved its authenticity. I tried the Beef Teriyaki which was very good. The atmosphere was nice - nothing upscale but very casual. Servers were nice and polite too. I do recommend this restaurant to people who are looking for an... More

The servers were kind but the place isn't all that clean. The table was sticky and the Rainbow row was poorly made with crab filling. I went to get a sugar pack for my Ice tea and the packets were all stained from possibly a drink falling on it. The texture of the cucumber in my sushi roll was solid.... More

I've always said that this place is not a Japanese restaurant in the usual sense--it's like a restaurant in Japan, a regular place, not overly adorned with the usual Asian decor. And that simplicity is charming in itself, but the food is what stands out. Amazing stuff, consistently good, from the sushi to the grill items. It's a small place... More

This is a small little family owned restaurant. Do not judge it by the curb appeal, because there isn't any. My BF & I have been coming here for about once a week for about a year and we love it. We have never had a bad meal and the service has always been spot on. We usually get the... More

Went there last week I should have listened to Jeremy H. Wasnt keen on going but since it's walking distance from the hotel so give it a try. I love japanese and japanese culture but never seen one SAD place like this. The hostess has no smile, ( i think she is the owner herself). It was in the weekday... More
