Enjoyed a family meal in December. The food was well prepared, if a little pricey, but there are not a lot of other Japanese options in town. Service was OK; the restaurant was cold inside on a chilly evening.

I stopped for takeout on my way home from work. Regardless of the grumbling sounds coming from my stomach, I couldn't eat it. I ordered Orange Beef and got Orange Chicken. The chicken was bland and chewy. The sauce tasted more like ketchup with sugar dumped on it and the broccoli was old, brown, wrinkly, and rancid. I'll certainly think... More

I've only eaten here once, but was very impressed with the variety and delicious taste of the sushi. Went with friends and we all ordered something different to try it out.

Good food, choice of Japanese and Chinese entrees. Fried rice was great. Bring your own cork opener to avoid cork fee :-)

Great meal with freshly prepared food. I ate with a party of five others, and all of us agreed our dishes were beautiful and delicious.

I got the avacado roll, which tasted great. I also ordered the Hibachi Dinner Seafood. It was pricey but tasted very good.

Decent lunch choices and prices. I had the chicken hibachi which was so derail and my husband had suishi sashimi lunch. He said it was good, not the best sunshine he has had and somewhat disappointed it was a generic California roll with it. Good for a quick lunch.

I stopped in on the spur of the moment, ordered 4-5 appetizers for take out that looked really good. When I got home (I live out of town) I opened the box and it contained a large portion of rice with greasy chicken strips on top. Called the restaurant- nobody spoke enough English to understand that I got the wrong... More

Veg tempura appetizer was excellent; crunchy tuna roll appetizer was not so great; tempura shrimp was excellent; yellowtail roll appetizer was good. Nabe Yakiudon was a tasty treat. Hibachi scallops and chicken were mediocre dishes. Sushi plate was good.

I love this place and now they deliver! I am hooked on Tuna Tartar, Goyza and the steak and scallop hibachi. The spicy tuna roll is amazing.
