I have only been there for the sushi lunch buffet (about 30 times)...it's awesome. Always fresh, and the variety is out of this world. Try it...you won't be disappointed!

Stopped here on a whim after reading several positive reviews. Sushi, soup and service were all great. Ordered spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, shumai and California roll. My daughter was impressed with the California roll selections.

As a lot reviewers would say, come here for the lunch buffet. Come early because the place fills up quick. Well worth the price for a lunch buffet. Definitely will come back again.
