It was like eating in a run down bar. The service was good but the food was only ok. They need to take a look at Fairfields Shokai and mirror it.

Food is unique and delicious. We eat here occasionally. Our 11 year old daughter loves it. They have specialty drinks and beer available. Would make a good date night restaurant. I think they could use a little more atmosphere, maybe better/different lighting would do it....More

I don't need to say much about this place. It is so incredible and words will fail to do it justice. You have to try it. It is Pho-nomenal

The niguri is tasty. Very fresh yellowtail. You have to try the mild chicken wings. Again best I've ever had and the rolls are delicious. Good selection. Also go with Kirrin on tap. Good eats

I have gone here over 15 times and have never walked away disappointed. Everything from the appetizers to the sushi rolls are made with love... not to mention everything is so FRESH! I would recommend this place to anyone because there are options for everyone!

Don't let the outside restaurant decor fool you, because inside, the sushi is fantastic with reasonable prices, a great value with great food and drink.

The yorokobi shrimp is to die for. I love fresh sushi, there's a reason their egg rolls always sell out, and I have never had a bad meal here.
