The owners (looked like husband and wife team) are the chef and waitress. They have the restaurant for 30 years! With no other helper, service is very slow....be prepared to spend hours just to have a meal! Portion is plentiful, but the cut of the...More

The fish was very fresh. It was the best maguro sushi I have had in ages. The udon was generous portion and very tasty. The tempura was well done. Great value. It was not crowded and we could sit anywhere. Because there were not many...More

This place is awesome! I've had sushi all over the world and this is top notch. The udon is ridiculous and the tofu soup is good enough to be the focus of the restaurant. Environment is very family/local (Kozu is the nicest man around), nothing...More

Over the years I never thought it was the best sushi place in the US, but it was passible. It is also Japanese owned, so I expected better food. It isn't even as good as in the past unfortunately. The nigiri rice balls are apparently...More

Cute little hole in the wall place that looked like it needed a good scrub. I was really hoping they paid more attention to the food than the presentation of the restaurant but unfortunately I was let down. I ordered sushi rolls and the rice...More
