Good Sushi Godzilla roll and rice. Very friendly waitress, kind and returned to table to check frequently. Meal was delivered in 3 segments, which was fine, but very filling.

We waited at least 20 minutes and got our entree, she forgot our sushi, then asked if we still wanted it. The entree I had was the chicken fried rice... the... More

Having eaten Japanese food most of my life in Hawaii, I am very familiar with the cuisine. However, considering how far away we are from Hawaii or the Orient the effort was not bad. Keep the Chinese food off the menu and focus on Japanese cuisine. The sushi could have used a bit more rice vinegar. The Maki Sushi needs... More

We have visited multiple times in the past. In the beginning the food was wonderful, but over the course of the past 8-10 months there has been a noticeable change. I keep trying to like the food, but it has become impossible. The waitstaff are super, the manager is friendly and kind. But the food is just not good. The... More

Went to Ganbei with my family for lunch. Had a very tasty sushi roll. We also got teriyaki chicken and rice. Rice was the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is very relaxing . The staff is great. Recommend to all.
