I came this restaurant because my friend recommended. Huge disappointment 😔 Sushi doesn't seems fresh. Service ok that's why I gave 3 . I don't want to go back this restaurant. Not worth for $!

Whenever we are in the area we eat here. Sushi is fresh, lots of seating at the Sushi bar and plenty of Sushi Chefs. Our server was pretty inexperienced this last time but otherwise it was all good. Sushi Chefs are always fast and good. This place is always busy.

If you LOVE albacore , you will LOVE this place. The albacore sushi comes w the Best ever Punsu sauce and thinly sliced onions on top. It's the reason I come to this particular restaurant. They also have a really good lobster roll. If you like alcacore, then their albacore salad is a must. Served w a large size scoop... More

Based on one lunch I'd say this is a good reasonably priced sushi spot. Seemed very fresh on a Monday afternoon. I had a combo with some very tasty basic rolls, and their version of sesame chicken. I'm guessing their version is more authentic than a lot of Americanized styles because it was not coated in thick sweet sauce, and... More

I haven't been here for years and I'm so glad my friend reminded me of it. I've been back 3 times over the past few of weeks. The sushi is really good and the portions are huge! For affordable sushi that will fill you up, this is the place to go.

Wow, this place is a gem and have now frequently returned here for lunch and sometimes dinner, Heads up, the portions are big and suggest that you can share your dish with someone. I like the seaweed salad and the beef dish. the ginger... More

We eat here every time we visit Pasadena. We found it by accident and have kept coming back because they never disappoint us.

My co-workers took me here for a birthday lunch in February. They are regulars here so we sat at the sushi bar while they fired away orders to Sam our Sushi chef. I can't remember exactly what they all ordered, but man this guy gave us very generous portions. The Nigiri rolls were very good. Most sushi restaurants give you... More

Prices were great, especially considering portion sizes. I ended up bringing back over half of the food to the hotel. One thing I had was uni, (sea urchin.) This is a tough one to get right, and it was okay. It's just that it needs to be really really fresh. I wouldn't say it wasn't fresh, just not as fresh... More
