I've only had sushi here. The nigiri has been uniformly excellent. The ratio of fish to rice is very high, large slice of fish, no effort to fill you up with rice. The manizushi/norikami (rolls) are a bit hit or miss. Sometimes the nori is fresh and crisp, other times, a bit chewy. The flavor is fine, just a texture difference. The miso is very good, I haven't tried anything else on the menu since the sushi is so good.

Easy seating, nice atmosphere, good and friendly service. The sushi was good, as was the soup and salad. My daughter liked the Udon noodle soup and the rice. My husband loved the soft shell crab in tempura. I got the bulgogi box, which is a Korean dish, so it didn't really fit the Japanese style presentation. The box came with the bulgogi beef on rice, which was tasty, but then it also came with a sushi style bulgogi roll, which I thought was too much of the same thing on the plate. I think I should have asked for a different kind of roll for my box. We had some half priced sushi rolls, which were a great bargain. The chicken teriyaki was a little on the dry side, but all in all, we had a good experience.

The waitress was inattentive and my veggie tempura was not exciting. I think the oil it was cooked in was old. Anyway, it had an odd taste and I did not finish it. The people who had sushi in our group of six seemed mostly happy. Two of us ended up with upset tummies though and I would not go there again. I also thought they were a bit over -
priced.

Wow what happened to this place. Bad service our meals came with soup and salad but we had to ask for them right when they brought the main course. We were never checked on I ran out of water and no waitress. Today is free roll with spending 20$ or more but not for us apparently just seaweed salad. The sushi fell apart and was not wrapped right with not great taste. The ramen soup was just a 65¢ package of ramen but charged 10$. The chicken curry was strange very bland and hardly taste curry. Sorry to say we probably won't be back needs a major change.

Like other people have already written, this place offers very good, tasty and fresh sushi. The owner was very nice, recommend on different dishes and explained on each. I'd certainly come back.
