We had dinner here one evening, and the food was good.
We were served free green tea and a miso soup which was a nice surprise
We chose hot and cold dishes and everything was delicious
Reasonable prices and good service

were hoping to be wowed with a retro sushi boat experience. sat in nice booth instead, ordered from menu. Fish in udon bowl not fresh. Nigiri sampler - lackluster. Pork teriyaki tough. disappointing on every front.

Favorably priced lunch specials, with much variety and samplings served on a multi-divided tray. I like the options of chicken teriyaki, salmon teriyaki, veggie & prawn tempura, salad, miso soup, and rice. Alternate choices include beef teriyaki, sushi rolls, sashimi, and a lightly fried veggie cake (tasting much like fried mashed potatoes). A feast and a delight for all taste buds. I work close by and like to stop in here about once a week for lunch, and sometimes with a little Sake. Large sushi bar in the center of the restaurant. Nice private booths as well as tables. Very accomodating servers.

This is one of our favorite places to eat with our four year old. We find the food is good and enjoyable and the service is great. As we frequent there the staff know us and always get our table ready for us when we arrive. There is an area (counter) set aside that has many activities for kids to entertain themselves. (coloring, games, books. Fantastic idea)
They are very accommodating for our daughters eating needs and make sure she is well taken care of when we are there.
I find the prices to be very reasonable and whether you are with kids or not this is a great place to enjoy a meal. (Ramen especially yummy :)

Slow service and an inspiring menu make for dependable and affordable dining but nothing special. Large space could use. Makeover
