This place has the best sushi. The Lion King. The Love. The jalapeño tuna poppers. Everything is so good. Sometimes busy, but not much usually. Great service. Fast. If you love Sushi, eat here.

This is still the place for sushi in the creek. Love the Ryan and Nama rolls. Definitely not authentic rolls you find in Japan but pure California cuisine which is fine by me. Green tea is served hot and delicious. If you are in the...More

Friendly service and OK tempura and sushi. The tempura was a bit too pasty and greasy though copious. The miso soup a bit thinned down and the California roll average. The chicken teriyaki was good.

We have been here a number of times. The prices are reasonable and the food is awesome. The atmosphere and décor are nothing fancy, but the food and pricing definitely make up for this. Our favorite rolls are the Love Roll (baked scallops), and the...More

The food is great, the servings are ample and the service is amazing, even when crowded. The waitress had to run, which made me believe that they are understaffed. We usually go to the (quieter) Nama Sushi in Pleasant Hill but they were hosting a...More
