Watching your fresh food cooked right in front of you. The Chef was so funny and entertaining. He also cooked a great dinner for each one of us.

The restaurant is usually near empty and is in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you. Great sushi, rolled perfect! Fresh, fast and great!

The sushi is made fresh. It is a quaint relaxed restaurant and the staff is very pleasant. The sushi is great! A great variety at an affordable price. I often go there to order take out as well.
