Our son and his wife treated us to this relatively new Japanese sushi and steak restaurant. We are not sushi fans but had a couple of vegetarian sushi appetizers. They were good. The coconut shrimp appetizer was excellent. I had Orange Chicken which was very...More

I tried the buffet again today, after having eaten here with friends shortly after it opened. I wouldn't recommend it. I tried a little of everything. The sushi is a thin piece of whatever over a short "finger" of tasteless, dry rice. The various rolls...More
