Went for lunch for the second time. Wanted to give it another chance. Sushi rice was stale and the salad tasted old. Waitress was shocked and said “but I made it yesterday!” Yesterday?? One person swept the floor with a dustpan kicking up dust while...More

Our service was excellent, very knowledgeable and kind, didn't rush us. We had 5 different rolls between us and only didn't like one of them. The rest were excellent. They had the usual ones but also new twists. Only thing I don't like is that...More

The sushi here is still good as well as the hot plates but when they first opened they had a better grip on the public and their customers. I'll say in the last 8 months to a year they have sort of lost their momentum....More

Is $8 for a sapporo normal? It seemed high to me. $5 or $6 for bottles of other beers- nothing on tap. For $19.95, all you can eat sushi was a great deal. I went with a friend at 5:30pm on a weekday after work...More

Ok... do not listen to those who desire to have their food delivered as though this fine establishment was Burger King. Do not arrive expecting a fast (in and out) meal. That said, let me say that me and my crew were more than satisfied...More
