Great value for the money. This was our second time and we tried the calamari and sushi and were very happy with our choice.

Food is great. A little salty for me, but I'm very sensitive to salt. So try it first! Sushi is great! I love the super Tom and tempura roll. Stuffed after! Very small space, so come early come hungry!!

Always on the lookout for goo sushi joints....Sushi is excellent, fresh basic and not terribly expensive. Ordered to take out after hearing about it from a friend. Restaurant is fairly small ( in a storefront). There was a wait for a table a 6 PM, so obviously they are doing something right to be that crowded so early. Will definitely... More

Immediately after being seated, we were given a folding paper menu and a double-sided color menu. Then within two minutes we were asked if we were ready to order. Then within another five minutes another waitress asked us if we wanted to order. Appetizers came separately, as did the main dish. Overall food was very good. Yes, it was crowded.... More

I have never had sushi as wonderful as this place! This place may be a hole in the wall, and you certainly have to pick and choose your times to go because it stays so packed! If you ever try it you will be just as addicted as I am.

Not a sushi lover, yet I love this place. The food is delicious, plus they have great variety. The staff is super friendly. It is usually crowded, so prepare for a reasonable waiting time.

This is our favorite sushi in charlotte, you can get traditional but you can also choose from a very large variety of specialty rolls. We also love the shrimp tempura appetizer. They get very busy and can take a while to be seated if you go during their peak hours, but it's so worth the wait.

Thank Emijane1216
