For Food and Ambiance details, see the other reviewers: Both were very good! Many reviewers said the service was bad and sure enough, it was for us as well. But, in our case we got stuck with a bad server. We arrived early in the...More

The food is delicious and the decor is Victorian meets Asian. We often do take out because the floor plan is a little cramped. Family ownedyou will often se Pi and Mama cooking and rolling sushi, and they remember regular customers.

We lunched here mid week and had a delightful experience. The lovely sunny porch dining area provided a very pleasant ambiance. Egg roll was delicious. Beef hibachi and shrimp tempura were tasty, but, unfortunately, there were more veggies than either beef or shrimp in the...More

Not expecting a Japanese restaurant so close, our school faculty had lunch there with an exchange teacher from Japan. We had a nice experience, and because of the group size, did not have extremely fast service, but that just gave us more time to talk....More
