This has to be one of the best sushi restaurants in the world. The sushi is amazing and the hot sake is the best. I could easily eat everything on the menu. The service is so friendly and fast. The portions are big. I was...More

The steak and chicken lunch combo was very tasty. Although the portions were plenty, they were smaller than I’m used to in Ohio. The steak was extremely tender! Service was very good except for a drink mixup—not a problem though!

Stopped in while waiting for traffic to Clear on I10. Noisy local place, nice atmosphere, not fancy, nice food, kids, salad and soup. Good service, not much of a wine list, but LA Cream Pinot Noir was great with Good Beef dishes.

Of the Japanese restaurants in the Spring Branch area, we have found this one to be the best. There is a wide selection of items on the menu. I usually order some kind of Bento box and my wife will order Soba/Udon soup. The Bento...More

Sushi rolls were excellent and so were the soba noodles. We had the combination soba and it was just full of great ingredients. We had one of the spicy tuna rolls and shrimp. Service is always friendly and fast.
