Just happened in because I was in a motel near by. Several people at the bay having a good time. Good sushi any varied options those who want their food cooked.

The food was very good but everything was expensive and there were a lot of waitresses hanging around and talking to each other (rather than waiting on tables).

Had the lunch special grilled chicken bento box. Comes with rice and a small salad plus a delicious miso soup. My friend had the calamari lunch special. She liked that too. Nice atmosphere and good service.

DM has fresh sashimi that tastes amazing! Presentation is always perfect. Love the numerous rolls we have tried over the years, as well as the noodle dishes. There is something for everyone, including non sushi eaters. Nice clean interior and friendly staff.

I went with two friends who had the red dragon and alpenglow roll. I opted for the hor-fun noodles. The service from the waiter was unfriendly and pretentious and the noodles and calamari were tasteless and rubbery. The red dragon sushi was okay, the alpenglow...More
