This place isn't overly elegant but the waitress we ended up with was really friendly and the sushi was good. We sat in the sushi bar which is "seat yourself" and close quarters but all in all it was a nice dinner. The waitress definitely saved it. The first waitress that came by seemed like she could care less.

Arrived for a fun Birthday celebration and left feeling rushed and disappointed. Chef didn't smile or even say two words to anyone at the table. The food orders were incorrect on several items and we were rushed through the meal and rushed to pay the check. Birthday picture is blurry and the size of a postage stamp! Sad how this... More

Restaurant was dark and old. Staff and Chef were average, nothing special. Sushi was good, main course was average. Would not eat here on return visit. Prices were high even for Japanese food.

Food similar to the places where it's cooked at the table. The savings must be that here it's prepared in the kitchen.

The food was fantastic. I love going to Japanese Restaurants that cook in front of you. Our cook could have been a little better, but the food more than made up for it.

Ate dinner here at the Sushi bar, and I was quite pleased with the quality. You wouldn't expect good sushi in rural south georgia. The chef was quick to make my rolls, and the service was good considering it was packed. The prices were reasonable and the menu had a lot to offer in the way of rolls considering the... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Valdosta. The sushi room is great if you don't want to go through the cooking demonstration at the grill tables, or if you don't feel like sitting at a table with people you don't know.
