A great place to visit for lunch or dinner with palate pleasing offerings of sushi, sashimi, nigiri, as well as grilled options. The service from smiling staff is attentive.

Went with friends and had a great meal. Service was excellent and the sushi tasted very fresh. Prices reasonable for good sushi. Plenty of Japanese beer and saki also. Will go back again. Please give this review a helpful vote if you find it helpful.

For what they charge I would have expected better quality. Maki rolls were ok but miso soup was bland. Tempura was kind of soggy. Ramen was ok but also under-seasoned.
