What we had was good, but we love the fry shrimp and it seems like they were refilling everything else but the shrimp dish was empty. I ask if they can refill it and after 30 minutes the dish got refill with fiew. It looks...More

Friends took us here for dinner. There were big line ups outside and we waited about 20 minutes to get in. I was really surprised by the quality of Sushi as they were pumping it out really quickly. The hot food side was average. They...More

Tray after tray of hot and cold offerings. Row after row of Sushi, hot mussels, cold mussels, fish, soup, teriyaki chicken on a stick, a made-to-order veggie/protein stir fry station, desserts. Some of the items are labeled Gluten-free. There is something for every eater here....More

They have the freshest sushi and a regular Chinese menu for those who need cooked food. Clean restaurant and restrooms.

The food and the selection is great. Pricing is moderate and tables are usually available. It would be nice if the staff created a more "organized" entry area where you can move around without bumping into everyone else.

Good food, good variety, family type. The sushi bar is my favorite, they have around 15-20 different types at list, there is a cook to order mini bar, and hot items as well.

Lots of choices but pretty ho hum food. LOTS of fake crab and selections are frequently mislabeled, (mussels labeled as oysters, white fish labeled as salmon). You can eat a ton for the price, but the question is would you want to.

Even for the picky eater, anyone can find something they just love here. From the adventurous to the meat and potatoes fare. Priced reasonably, and special prices for children based on their age. We used to love Todia's in Portland then they closed...
