The food at this restaurant is good especially some of their special rolls. The server also was friendly. However the interiors of the restaurant is quite uninspiring. There were also only 2 other tables when we went for dinner, which initially scared us about entering...More

Celebrated birthday dinner here, good sushi, not overly fancy spot. Yummy spicy edamame. Waiter increasingly inattentive as meal went on, and the special $21 roll never came. Had to ask host for check, which charged us for the missing roll. The quickly adjusted the bill,...More

Extremely disappointed. The service was great. The waitress extremely friendly and attentive however the food was disgusting. Definitely not fresh. We were unsure what we wanted so we ordered a California Roll as a starter. It came out too fast. It was definitely not fresh....More

Got there for a late lunch. They gratiously opened for us and served excellent sushi. The fish is very fresh, and well prepared. Delicious. Ambiance is a little week. You really feel like a shopping center. But, the food and service makes up for it.
