We've travelled extensively in Japan. This place is similar to many of the excellent family-run restaurants at which we ate there.

Popped in for a quick lunch whilst staying in the area. Service was excellent, and there was a good selection from the lunch menu. Sushi was fresh and tasty. My guest was disappointed with the spicy tuna rolls. "Lots of breadcrumbs and no spice." $50 for 2. No drinks.

Sushi, dumplings and sukiyaki are really great. Definitely a good place to bring some friends for dinner.

It was our wedding anniversary and we made reservations. I ate sushi my wife had the noodles with clams. She got sick all night. I called to complain and told them to check the quality of the food. They took my phone number and never got back to me to apologize.

We have been coming here for years and, have for the most part, really enjoyed the food. However, this is a small restaurant which should, in my estimation, know it's loyal patrons. It does not. Every time we come, they seem not to recognize us, which is a turn-off considering that we come as frequently as every week or two.... More

There aren't many sushi places in Lexington, this one was okay. Over priced for what you are getting, but it is fresh. Service was good. Very clean inside.

Food quality is fine but portions are small and pricey. Strange chemistry among servers, not a comfortable environment and always a sense of being rushed
