For as far away from the ocean this restaurant may be, it serves up fresh every time. The noodle and soup dishes are perfect portions and have wonderful flavors.

The food was decent but the prices are high for the quality. There are too many good restaurants in Bishop to come here again. It has a good atmosphere and our waiter was good. Sushi was average.
