We went early, getting there a bit prior to opening at 5:00. By 5:15 the hibachi tables were full. We enjoyed the food and the chef. Plenty of flavor with 5 or 6 dip choices. Server was very attentive.

Pleasant place with an attentive staff. The eel hand roll was the best I have ever had. The sushi was fresh and the tempura delicious. The crunchy roll was above average.
