Staff member was rude, total jerk. Walked in and was okay with having to wait 15-20 minutes so took a seat. After 25 minutes started seeing people walk in and be seated. Asked the guy if we had been skipped and was told we'd be at the next table (party of 3 btw) two more tables sat and nothing. When... More

The atmosphere is fun & upbeat, the staff love to entertain and the food is amazing... I always ask for Double Yum-Yum and have enough leftovers for two more meals. I read that it's expensive but we go as a treat, not a weekly event. You get what you put into it - if you don't want to play along... More

The owner of this restaurant is Japanese, not like other so called Japanese restaurants. Sushi is really Japanese one, fresh and good. It is nice that we can eat real Sushi in Flint. Price is reasonable, inside is clean. Serving tea is tasty, even though the tea pots are always leaking. lol

I should have spoken up and insisted my dinner be cooked without salt. It was expensive and very nearly inedible. I will never go back.

Everything is very fresh and beautifully plated. Must try: Yummy Yummy roll. It has almost every type of seafood you can imagine rolled inside, it is breaded and flash fried...warm and crispy on the outside, cool and delicious on the inside, drizzled with spicy sauce and dotted with tri-color caviar. Yummy! Yummy!

The food here is fresh, flavorful and cooked to order and right in front of you! It's always fun if you get a chef that likes to play around with the patrons at your table. I have never had fried rice like this either - buttery deliciousness. I love the shrimp, steak and chicken too. The noodles are so tasty...... More

My wife and I always enjoy this Chinese steak house in Fenton. This is a great spot to eat if you have the money and the time.

I don't think I would return..Ukai in... More
