This is a real Japanese restaurant, we are lucky to have a restaurant like this in Cincinnati.
Eating their food will remind any Japanese person of home. They serve all the usual dishes like sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, sukiyaki, tempura, etc but they also serve comfort food like Japanese style curry, omrice and many items that a Japanese person would eat in Japan. Keep in mind that some of these items are not even on the menu but if you know enough to ask for these things they will probably have it or can make it for you. The service is really great, the workers do what ever is needed, you are not dependent on your particular server, I think their relatively small size allows them to operate that way. Mr and Mrs. Ando are masters when it comes to running a restaurant they have been in the industry most of their adult lives. If you know and understand Japanese cuisine you will really appreciate this restaurant, it doesn't get much better than this. That's why you will often see lots of Japanese people eating there, they know.

It is a BYOB restaurant, which who doesn't love that? The staff is very friendly and helpful. The sushi is extremely fresh and very reasonable. If you're going on a Saturday night, I suggest making a reservation. It is small and quaint and fills up quickly. If you're bringing a bottle of your own, you will want to stay long after your meal is finished. This has become one of our favorite date night destinations.

Great sushi place for lunch. Quick service and good prices. Try the Bento box and any of their sushi.

Food is of great quality and fresh. You get what you paid for. My only favorite sushi place in town I deemed the best.

We went here on a whim! We wanted sushi and heard this place was authentic. We didn't know you needed reservations but were seated at the sushi bar right away! The place was packed and now I know why. The food is fresh and really good.
