We like to get there for the happy hour pricing. You can get reduced price sushi as well as reduced price drinks. The staff is always friendly and the sushi is delicious. We just keep ordering until we are full or happy hour ends. Enjoy!

The server seemed rushed but did his job, but the "you'll be fine" after asking about gluten was incorrect. There was gluten in something, which I read later on online could be the sushi rice, but I did not have sushi. The fish on my...More
