Whether you choose sushi or Hibachi you can't go wrong. Friendly, attentive service. Handsome portions at a reasonable price. It's more traditional in their offerings but I happen to like that. I've been there a few times and each time I was well pleased.

This is a quick dinner type place for my husband and I. They have a nice hibachi grill offering and it's reasonable. The Wasabi dumplin's are our favorite.
