Great lunch, great happy hour, excellent attention to detail. Sushi was great and flavorful. Teriyaki sauce is nice and light. Not too sweet. Stir fried veggies all cut perfectly. Not many folks realize the importance of good prep. Crispy beef is NY strip. No one...More

I went for lunch and had higher expectations for a sushi place. The decor is nice as is the location. The prices are reasonable. The sushi was pretty good as well. I had the "Hot Night" Chef's Choice roll which was as advertised and delicious....More

I went here for lunch with a group of co-workers who recommended it. The teriyaki chicken was good but the portion was really small. I also ordered a spicy tuna roll and it just didn't seem fresh at all. Its appearance and taste made me...More

Food was fresh and prepared quickly without skimping on taste! Must have the sake bomb! I wasn't crazy about the spicy tuna roll but everything else was great!
