Excellent variety and quality of sushi but it doesn't end there. They offer a wide variety of modestly priced selections including hibachi steak and other Japanese delicacies. Excellent atmosphere and wait service is top notch. Very attentive to your needs and requests.

Sapporo is a decent enough restaurant but nothing outstanding. Food is presented well and the staff is friendly but the "meat market" atmosphere is overwhelming. I prefer to enjoy conversation with friends rather than loud conversations of strangers.More
