Good sushi, miso, and pork katsu curry. Tempura cheesecake was good too. We had a good customer service experience and were able to add cream cheese to our two rolls for only a dollar. Volcano roll had a lot of rice noodles on top, a tad bit excessive since we had to find the roll underneath, but it was especially... More

The sushi is tasty, there are many choices on the menu. The rest of the menu is not very exciting, The flavors are not great. The bibimbop is horrible, nothing like the Korean style. I will go back just for the sushi.

They are very consistently good with their food. I love their miso soup and vegetarian stir fry. The portions are large. My husband always gets sushi and he thinks it is very good. Their dumplings are a favorite too. It is in a strip shopping center so plenty of parking. We always go early but they can get busy. Very... More

It was our first visit but our kids and grandkids eat here regularly. We can see why. The sushi rolls were as good as the best we have in Ct. The appetizers were great as well. Service and ambience were fine and prices were moderate. We averaged $25 per person without tip.

Everything I ate was good. The crunchy tuna roll and crunchy shrimp rolls are especially delicious! We will definitely go back when we are in the area again!

I don't know what happened to what used to be one of my favorite restaurants. Perhaps they were bought out by new ownership? Whatever you do, DON'T go after 1 p.m. for lunch unless you plan to wolf down your food and run out the door. In the past I had met clients there for lunch around 1:15 and was... More

Had dinner here with friends. Huge selection. Excellent food - miso, salad and veggie Tempura all superb. Only problem - the portions were immense. Could easily have shared. Would have been preferable to order appetizer for more reasonable portions. Service was fine. Prices were reasonable. Would love to return.

Brought a friend here for birthday. Shared wine, nigiri sushi, wicked salmon roll. Very fresh, very tasty. They were able to accommodate birthday desert with something we never would have ordered: tempura ice cream. Oh my, that was a once in a lifetime delicious treat. Our server could not have been more gracious and perfectly attentive. Casual but lovely. Can't... More

Since finding this gem, we visit several times a month. The two sushi chefs, Oscar and Mr. Tomo, are fabulous. If you sit at the sushi bar they take excellent care of you. Since we are now frequent customers they offer suggestions and create new and spectacular sushi meals for us to enjoy. They are friendly as are the entire... More
