Decent food in a nice ambiance...decor is a bit outdated, but the sushi is fresh, the Sukiyaki tasty, and the service friendly and prompt. Good place to take larger groups or have an intimate dinner.

My hubby and I have been going to this restaurant since it opened. The food is consistently good. There are several rolls that we always eat. Yummy yam, sleeky shrimp, Eddie special and the tuna with cheese.
