I just had the Sushi and it was very good. The service staff was reserved, definitely not gregarious and fun like sushi staff I have enjoyed in Sushi restaurants in Japan. Overall good but not over the top.

This is probably the 10th visit and we have never been disappointed. Everything is fresh and the presentation is always great. The people there are always friendly and attentive. Try the fried Ice cream It looks like a sushi roll and the taste is yummy.
