We ordered 56 dollars worth of food and when they showed up 2 hrs later, everything was cold and mushy. We called them 3 times and was assured our food was on it's way. We didn't get a much as an apology. Never again!

This is our family favorite go-to sushi restaurant; it's casual, reasonably priced, and the sushi is always good. There is a hibachi party-room in back, too, but we've only ever come for sushi.

The staff is great; they help us with our wheelchair-using family member; they remember our names; and the sushi is wonderful!
