If you are going for lunch make certain you are there way ahead of closing time even more than 1/2 hour before they close or you will get the dreaded attitude. We were there 1/2 hour before closing and were reluctantly showed a table. In addition, before we were told welcome - which, BTW, never occurred - we were told... More

I love their sushi and their teriyaki and the food is consistently good. It is a good place to go when you are hungry and if you are only 2 people you can eat at the sushi bar which is always interesting.

This location has always been good for fantastic Japanese food. It is very reasonable and your family can enjoy good food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and you will never walk away hungry.

This saddens me to see a place which I loved so much go downhill so badly. As I previously posted Sam, Kit, and Mickey are awesome, they are what made this place a fantastic experience, and they were Katsu. It is horrible when an owner treats his employees so poorly, to take SO much from them, to take from their... More

I went in for dinner and found out that my once favorite restaurant would be no more. Apparently, the restaurant has sold and new management made the decision to let go of their three sushi chefs: Mickey, Kit and Sam. Honestly, the only reason we go to Katsu was to sit at the sushi bar and get served by Mickey,... More

Some fabulous, fresh sushi and a monster roll of your choosing and believe me, you're set! Oh, I forgot... unfiltered saki is ma perfect side drink...... More
