This is a hidden gem. It is a little restaurant tucked into a strip mall just down from Wal-Mart. The food is always good. I have had both lunch and dinner there and have never had a bad meal. You get a lot of food for the money. The cooked carrots are so good I could make a meal just... More

It's great to be able to get a small salad or soup, hibachi chicken with mushrooms and delicious sweet carrots for the same price as a combo fast food meal. It's a regular lunch spot for me and work colleagues. They have a good variety and also serve sushi. Great value.

Try the Manhattan Roll. Food very consistent. Spring rolls are a little overdone but still good. Crowded on Sunday.

Choose not to do hot food bar and instead ordered food to eat in. I was in a party of three and each dish ordered was tasti and delicious. I would eat there again.

Pretty good food and decent prices. Try the carrots! They're delicious. Not good for people with the gluten allergy.

I hadn't eaten here in a few years. My fiance and I recently decided to eat here again. It was a very poor decision. First, the appetizers are terrible and overpriced. Don't waste your money. An entree comes with either a soup or side salad. Do yourself a favor and choose the soup. The salad is nothing (and I mean... More

A single meal, and one sushi roll cost $22. The food was average, a good value for the amount, but the sushi ruined it. One roll cost me $8 asnd was horrible, 6 pieces total so the wife and I finished it just hoping it would get better. Poorly wrapped, horrible taste and topped off with a healthy dosing of... More
