I love this place and now they deliver! I am hooked on Tuna Tartar, Goyza and the steak and scallop hibachi. The spicy tuna roll is amazing.

Loved this place! We had the best rolls I've ever eaten. We also liked that it was BYOB. There is a wine shop nearby to grab a bottle. Nice find near Penn State and hotels.
