Fun spot!! Great Maki rolls at great prices!! Lunch specials are fantastic. Tucked in the back of an older strip mall but worthy food!! Don’t miss the Godzilla roll!! My personal favorite! The eel roll is second! A must stop spot! 👍🏻

Do not order the all you can eat sushi buffet. If you don't finish it they charge you for what you don't eat on top of the $17.00 price. The sake nigiri was terrible: Huge amounts of rice and warm salmon. The waiter was THRILLED...More

Although the restaurant is hard to find ... it was worth it! We ordered take out and really enjoyed our meal of dragon rolls and tempura! Other reviewers warned that take out could take a while so we ordered it well in advance so it...More

We visited for a late lunch on a Saturday; there were about 2 dozen people here. We were promptly seated and waited on; food arrived at just the right intervals. My companion thought the soup was too cold, but I thought it was just right!...More

Was excited for the all you can eat sushi buffet. But there's a catch. If you don't eat everything you order you get charged on top of the $22.95. I ordered the Traverse City roll and the salmon was warm, the rice was mushy, and...More

Who doesn't love a reasonably priced sushi buffet? I recommend going for lunch when the buffet is $17. Service was good and the sushi was too. Not knock your socks off, but a good value if you can put away more than a few plates!
