Best sushi I have had in a while. Ordered for delivery on skip the dishes. We have eaten at every sushi restaurant in the south and nothing is this good.

We went as a group of six on a Sunday. It wasn't too busy but it took a long time for our food to come out - and they ended up bringing us a duplicate of a few things (which I guess isn't a negative as we pointed it out and we were not charged for this). We often go... More

This is the best sushi place I have found close to my neighborhood yet, they provide fast friendly service, complimentary dishes and never have a big line to wait in. As well the food is more reasonably priced then many other places.

Our family had sushi, sashimi, ramen, tempura and udon. All were very good. Sashimi was fresh and nice thick slices. Liked the complimentary gyoza. Complimentary pocky sticks are also a nice touch. Good value.

Our 4 rolls were on the table in record time. All food was fresh and tasty. Located in a strip mall I wasn't expecting much and was surprised by the offerings. They offer small rols, 4 each, so try several different things. Prices are great too.

I tried this place with my boyfriend. We were seated by the friendly host. They gave us free sampler of gyoza and tempura fish. Both of them were delicious. My boyfriend hates anything fishy. The staff was nice that they didn't add fish flakes nor masago (roe) on any of our food. We ordered avocado grenade, takoyaki, tuna cone, california... More

Walked in to such a warm welcome! Would be perfect for small families or a small gathering. Rainbow was our server and not only was she a delight but she was quick! (Mango Salmon Roll...) Edamame was about 2 cups for only $4.95 We got the 24 piece spicy platter which was $14.95.... WHAT! You cannot even get that price... More
