Great sushi rolls of course, but the best experience was the sashimi and how it was presented. I even found the sticky rice with it to be very flavorful.

Yummy food, loved the ginger dressing, onion soup and California roll. Only complaint was the spider roll was covered in a sauce that was so fishy tasting we couldn't eat it. We ordered it without the seaweed and fish roe because of that very reason.

I've met one of the sushi chefs Roman. He told me to stop by so I did. He created me a few dishes that where amazing. The quality of the fish is top notch. Roman has worked in a few places and he assured they where the best in town. I may have to agree they didn't disappoint. Look forward... More

First the good. The shrimp and vegetable tempuras were quite good and the miso soup had a good bold miso taste. Our waitress was very friendly as were the sushi chefs. Maybe central Florida is just not the place to get sush or maybe we're just spoiled by all the good sushi places we have back in Hawaii. We generally... More

My favorite dishes here are the spider roll and the super crunchy. If you like fish, my husband loves the volcano. They make everything fresh and just how you like it. I always specify no roe and they make it perfectly for me. As far as appetizers go they have the best veggie and shrimp tempura. Very delicious!
