We came here on a late Sunday night and it looked like they were starting to wind down cause the crowd was a bit sparse. Getting seats at the sushi bar wasn't an issue. The fish was very fresh but the rice was starting to get a bit hard towards the end of the night. You can order off of... More

They'll have to change their name as there are no more sushi boats. Looks like health codes have sunk that tradition! The menu was varied and the food was good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. The noise and atmosphere was invigorating! Very happy environment.

I like the boats going around, they are very cute! The staff was nice and there was a big choice of food, not only sushi but also fried fish etc. One of the best meals I had on my U.S. Trip so far!

Sushi was ok. The sashimi was a good price and the pieces were of thick quality. I really liked how they put large containers of ginger on the table. I am a ginger lover and it bothers me when I have to ask for extra. The only thing they didn't put on the table was the low-sodium soy sauce

We enjoy going to this fun sushi boat restaurant. Its fun to watch the boats float by and choose what sushi one wants for dinner. The charge is by the plate - i.e. fancier sushi costs more. One can also order from menu items as well as ask the friendly sushi chefs for "special" sushi (i.e. uni for instance). There... More

every time I'm in San Jose I have dinner here. I always sit at the bar watching the dishes float past. The baked mussels and chicken skewers are excellent and the sushi is good too. The staff are attentive and a great mixture of cultures themselves.

For a sushi boat, I would give it a pass! It's good and the kids loved pulling the sushi from the boats. I've had better, but I would return.

I was in town for business and decided to try this place out. The place was very busy so I was hopeful the food would be good. I placed two separate orders (one for a co-worker and one for myself) and waited.... and waited. Considering they were busy, I didn't mind too much, but they do not have seating near... More

A business lunch meeting where I asked client to choose. This restaurant was selected. It was a great choice with healthy items on the menu, quick service and simple atmosphere, not loud where we can still converse. You can order from the menu or pu) items from the mini boats that are rotating. Each item is "plate coded" meaning the... More
