Well this place was pretty crowded and the timing of the food reflected it. I had the udon and I can say I've never had it served with squash and carrots before but the most interesting was that the noodles were cut about 1 1/2 inches which if your eating it with a spoon it's ok but chopsticks made it...

Lori and I had dinner here on 5/18/17. We ate at 6 PM, so missed the rush and enjoyed a wonderful meal with very attentive service. Lori had a cooked dinner, which she found to be top drawer and more than she could eat, while I roved all over the Sashimi menu and really enjoyed everything that came. It is... More

If you are looking for a quiet, restful evening to spend with friends, don't come here. The noise level is incredible. It would merit a bomb on a scale of 1 to 5. Aside from the noise, the service is quite good and the food is acceptable. Personally I'm not an aficionado of Japanese or Korean food, and this restaurant... More

The selection is always great. From the dragon roll to the Golden CA roll, you can never go wrong. Local and tourist favorite. Sometimes there is a wait because it is always busy. Food is nice and fresh.

My very first choice for Sushi! This is a very popular restaurant, for good reason. I always sit at the sushi bar. The service is almost instant. The chefs watch your meal service and make sure it is perfect. They are happy to discuss preferences and make suggestion.

The selection of different roles that they make is phenomenal. Very good in the different varieties. Service was a little slow but they were really busy during lunch time

Lots of food. Big roles. Poorly constructed, obviosly not by a trained sushi chef. Enthusiastic wait staff but a wait can be expected. Obviously popular with lots of families and kids. This is not a Japanese restaurant, but if you're hungry not an awful option. One high point - the miso was very good.
