The menu is so diverse that there is something on it for everyone. Sushi was great, tempura light and the beer cold. The service was good but could be better. Overall this was a terrific evening out with a friend.

This is not a 5 star Japanese restaurant. BUT it is very very good. Lexington has multiple Japanese companies. At least half the crowd, which was almost full, were Japanese. The hostess and waiters were all fluent in English. I have no complaints about food...More

We always go early for lunch because there is often a line by noon. There are daily specials and a full lunch menu of traditional Japanese dishes. Most come with a small salad and miso soup. Prices are $8 to $15. Sushi is available too....More

Whenever business takes me to this area, we always stop by at least once. We typically order sushi, sashimi, noodle soup, grilled salmon, and almost never forget the ice cream (green tea and mango). Friendly service and clean dining room. Will definitely come back.

As a solo business traveler, it's great to sit at a bar, and get excellent service. I had no less than 4 servers helping me, from drinks all the way through dinner. The sushi was first class and I would highly recommend a visit.
