I've been here with a client a few times and it's been good each time. I've had the salmon bento box—great value and filling. I also tried the sashimi/sushi combo--very good. I just wish the rolls were smaller in diameter since it's hard to cram a whole piece into your mouth unless you are a large person. Today I tried... More

Nice all around. The rolls are fantastic and tightly rolled with great flavor. We been here twice and hadn't found a roll we didn't like. Service is friendly and fast.

Yummy! We eat sushi once or twice a week. So we were really excited to try this place with all the great reviews. We started with something different Kobe Sizzler. You get thin slices of raw Kobe to cook on a hot stone. It was kinda cool. The meat was tender and the ginger soy sauce was great. Now for... More
