The food on the sushi restaurant side (not the Hibachi side), is fresh and consistently tasty. The sushi rolls are great, the appetizers and yummy too. The teriyaki dish is like what one would expect with tangy flavor.

I ordered a lunch box. The tempura tasted stale -- the panko bread crumbs seemed past their freshness date. The chicken teriyaki was very pale in color. I thought it would be grilled, but it looked boiled. No color or taste. California roll pieces were...More

His place was pretty cool. The other chain restaurants are fine but this one is worth visiting in riverside. And it's been some time but MTV was Filming when we were there. That was pretty cool

Love this restaurant. The quality is very good. We like to go with 4 to 6 people and order appetizers and sushi at a table or booth where we can sip sake and talk easily. Try the Hamachi sashimi, baked mussels and Central Avenue roll.

I like sushi, hubby doesn't. Wide range of food options. Took the grandson there once and he got steak! Reasonably priced for the type and quality of the food. We sit on the opposite side of the hibachi grill where it's quiet. Can't come up...More
