Ordered six rolls and none were anything to write home about. Very odd male server made the experience less than ideal. Prices were good and the atmosphere was what one would expect in a strip mall.

We ate lunch here twice in the last week. The service was good and the food was very good. Between the two visits we tried several different dishes and drinks and all were beautifully prepared and delicious.

Great gyoza and dipping sauce. Bento Box was abundant and tasty. Mackerel and tuna roll was very fresh. The salad dressing was interesting and fruity. Wait staff was attentive.
