A rare Japanese restaurant owned and run by Japanese. All the food is well prepared and comes out piping hot. Great specials that change monthly.

We eat here a lot and hands down this is the best place for authentic Japanese food. Service is excellent food is out of this world and the gourmet deserts are made by the owner. It's a must if you are in the area.

I'm not really a lover of sushi, but my friends tell me this is the best sushi around locally. I usually order a Philadelphia roll because I like the cream cheese and salmon. The prices on the lunch specials is very good and the portions...More

The always friendly staff and well prepared food makes this place a winner. Sushi is always fresh and well prepared as is everything else on the menu. It is a BYOB with a well stocked liquor store a few feet away.
