This restaurant is sort of tucked away off a main road. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside was nice. Service was very attentive and the sushi was excellent. On top of that, we got a huge bowl of delicious edamame (more...More

You must be kidding. Greasy soup. Awful sushi. We were too scared to eat the yellowtail, which was kind of gray. At least they took it off the check. If this place was ever even just mediocre--forget good--it must have changed hands.

We were a group of eight. Three of us had sushi, that was great. The other five had ribs, chicken and the fish special. All said it was just ok. After trying their food I had to agree. The service was very good.

We sat at the sushi bar, and split the fried saimin. Oh my gosh! So delicious! That is some real goodness there. The noodles are full of flavor, with vegetables, small bits of ham and bacon. Yum! Some other excellent stand outs are the UH...More

Our reason for coming to this restaurant was that we heard that they made the same pancakes that we used to get from the old Oki Diner. I'm not sure about the exact heritage, but it seems that someone previously connected with the Oki Diner...More

We waited 30 minutes to get the rolls although there were only three other parties at the restaurant; only one chef, perhaps making stuff for deliveries. The waitress couldn't tell one roll from another. The crab-stuffed mushrooms were hot but had almost zero taste. The...More
