This is the best sushi place I have found close to my neighborhood yet, they provide fast friendly service, complimentary dishes and never have a big line to wait in. As well the food is more reasonably priced then many other places.

Our family had sushi, sashimi, ramen, tempura and udon. All were very good. Sashimi was fresh and nice thick slices. Liked the complimentary gyoza. Complimentary pocky sticks are also a nice touch. Good value.

Our 4 rolls were on the table in record time. All food was fresh and tasty. Located in a strip mall I wasn't expecting much and was surprised by the offerings. They offer small rols, 4 each, so try several different things. Prices are great too.
