I had a geat risotto, nicely prepared (but I still can't figure why they added carots and Broccholies) and we shared sushi as an appetizers and we really enjoyed our meal. It's really a nice place where I would recommand you to stop by.

For it's great rating, I was expecting much more. This is more a local bar than fine-dining. I thought food was OK, ambiance sorta fair. Service was good though. Nothing to write home about. It was very average.

Clemson has a few nicer restaurants and this is one that shouldn't be ignored! Great sushi but also great steak and pasta dishes. I ordered the spinach pasta and it was great! Vegetarian options!
