Just expanded and making great steps to transform beyond a strip mall Sushi place. Service is really good and the quality and portions are what you would want from a great place. Looking forward to the official grand opening in a couple of weeks. -G

The bacon rice prepared right in front of you is delicious, and the grilled Chilean Sea Bass was tender and tasty. The entire meal, whether shrimp appetizers, the vegetables, or the main course, was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend this establishment if you're in the...More
