We went there on weekend lunch time and the restaurant was almost full. The server attended quickly and the service quality was not bad. I ordered Lunch Sushi and there were rolls and nigiris. There was no wasabi on the plate. I understand no wasabi...More

We love bringing friends and family from out of town here. Its fun watching their expressions when they see the portion sizes and taste the fresh sashimi. We also come here to celebrate because everyone leaves with a satisfied stomach. Lunch also includes miso soup.
