Fantastic sushi, fresh tuna, and more. The kids loved the tempura and homemade udon noodles. The fried calamari was so tasty and fresh as well. Visited 3 times in one week.

This is a green off a restaurant that is not easily found as it is on the second level of a outdoor shopping mall where other more visible restaurants may distract you. Don't let this happen to you. You'll love this place. The atmosphere is...More

Enjoyed a fabulous smoked yellowfin tuna with BBQ sauce. Pieces were the collar and the belly meat. So tasty. Also had a Spivey tune roll and a pork loin sautéed with House kimchi which was full of flavor. Followed by a show in the courtyard...More
