Absolutely LOVED this place - outstanding Sushi - the Spicy Dragon (different variants) were all amazing. The kinky roll was great too! - We sampled at least 6 different rolls and loved them all!

We came as party of 7. The service was good and the food came fast. The sushi was average and all the rest was less than that. I Do not recommend.

Stopped here with friends who have visited before--their recommendation was right on. There were multiple Bento Box options, which we enjoyed. Another favorite was the wasabi shu-mai. Service was quick, portions were large and prices were reasonable. We would definitely go back!
