I love visiting during the happy hour where the sushi is around $3-5. It tastes great without breaking the bank. A perfect place to go for a date just hanging out with friends!

The restaurant has moved to Westchase. Expanded and delightful changes have been made. Outdoor seating is now available and the bar is much larger. The food? Just the same good sushi. Well done! Continues to be the date night sushi place for us. Entrees were well prepared and excellent. Reasonably priced wine list and dinner menu. Atmosphere is casual and... More

My boyfriend had been raving about this place for weeks. I made sure I put it in our schedule. We missed getting there for happy hour on Friday which was the whole goal of visiting this place. Not my fault, company called me in at last minute. So we went on a Saturday night instead at full price. The happy... More

The food is the same - very good. Service is not quite as personal as before when they were located on N Dale Mabry. I specifically ordered non shellfish sushi- I am extremely allergic, deadly. I was serviced sushi roll with shellfish inside - their mistake - by me a huge mistake luckily a drug store next door. They apologized... More

Average sushi, it is always busy and you have to wait a lot to get in there specially on week ends. I think the best of this restaurant is that is well located. Also needs a better kid menu.

Took my sons with me for lunch after baseball practice. First of all, very slow service. I got a water right away had to wait a little while for the server to come back with their waters. I can say that the Miso Soup is pretty good, my older son liked the panko crusted chicken and my other son put... More

I wish I lived in this area, because this restaurant is now one of my favorites. I had the teriyaki shrimp for $14. I think there were 8 large shrimp. The dish also had large pieces of vegetables and rice. I took half of it home. The plum wine was also great. There were four of us and we all... More

Perhaps I expected more given the positive reviews and personal recommendations but I wasn't overly impressed by the flavor of food. In fact, I ordered the shrimp and veggie tempura Benton box and was disappointed that they didn't "clean out" the shrimp before cooking and serving. I would return to try something else but would race back or go out... More

Had a nice time last night at the new location on Racetrack Rd, at Countryway Blvd on Saturday night. Service was a touch spotty, took a little long to get drinks going and the sushi, salad and entrees came out of order. The bartenders were both really nice and we weren't really in a hurry so we didn't care too... More
