Just called... their hours say they are open until 10, called at 9:30 for a quick takeout (usually takes 15 min max) and they said they were closed. Not going back for mediocre sushi and poor customer service.

My daughter and I split a Flaming filet, Hearbreaker, and Vista dragon. Perfect amount of sushi for two. Rolls were terrific and reasonably priced. Service was friendly. Atmosphere was great. Will definitely come back the next time we are in Columbia.
