Good and inexpensive. I've eaten here many, many times, often with my wife and others. Almost without exception everything has been good or better. The sushi pieces are small, but so are the prices. The rainbow roll and deep fried California rolls are my faves....More

We were early to catch a film at the Rialto Cinema across the street and were hungry and needed to kill time. Manpuku is kind of a hole-in-the-wall place, and prior to eating there, I'd never heard of it. Well, the sushi was excellent, perhaps...More
