I got there on the day of the menu change so i had to read everything. the sushi and the classic food are now divided into separate sides of the menu. The spicy shrimp roll was very good.

This place is amazing. Decor is amazing. Full late night menu, sushi bar and outdoor seating. Located inside The Galleria so there is ample parking.

Located on the lower level in the Galleria mall. Food is at par with the Plano location. Took a while to get our food but it was well prepared. Had to rush the lunch to make it to the appointment.

Stopped here for a late lunch, they have a nice variety of menu selections. The food is good and consistent and the wait staff very attentive, but not overly so. We always stop here when we visit Houston
