Fast friendly service, nice fresh sushi and sashimi, the "cooked" entrées are very good as well. No complaints, one of the reasons we eat here once a month.

Family of 7 went there this week. Got immediate seated. Service was very friendly and efficient. Prices are very fair. We all ate something different and everyone enjoyed their selections. Would definitely go back for a second visit.

The bride and I usually share one of the large combo plates which is always enough for two people. You can get a variety of all meats served and the food always leaves a good taste in my mouth for the price.

We arrived at a good time (lunch on a sunday) so we were seated very quickly. Several in our group hadn't been here in a long while. Those of us who'd been here before all agreed it was better than we'd remembered. The food was...More
