My favorite all time restaurant. The service is fast and food is spot on. House salad is one of my favs and the value for what you get is worth every cent. And yes this is based on my own experience. Eat here often.

I stopped in here for sushi and the waitress let me add avocado to my rolls. Nice of her to do that. The sushi looked fresh and it was tasty, but part of what I love about sushi is the fantastic presentations. This establishment had...More

I would think, you would have to call and make the reservation. I think they would have that capacity, but a reservation would make sure you are all seated together. It's worth it👍🏼....enjoy!
