Always excellent services and food. They treat us like we are family. Their selection of sushi and other delicacies are phenomenal. Ask for Eric as your server.

Dined here twice - once solo and once meeting with a business team. Both times the service was friendly and food came out promptly. As other reviewers have mentioned their lunch special bento was quite reasonable and tasty. They also offer a wide combination of tradional and westernized Japanese specialties, and friendly service.

Had lunch at Meiko, as our favorite, Kaki Sushi, was not open for lunch on a Sunday. It was poorly understaffed. They were working hard, but food was not very special.

Can't believe the quantity and quality of the lunch special! You will not be disappointed. I only wish we had time to go back to sample other entries.

I have gone back to this restaurant with friends a couple of times, the daily lunch special is so reasonable and the serving will fill you up (between $7.99 to $8.99). It is chicken teriyaki with rice, sushi, tempura ,salad and miso soup. The food is good, service is friendly and efficient. I love it when we are able to... More

I went to pick up take out and really liked the inside atmosphere I saw. The booths with doors are great. The only thing I can speak to as far as the food is the rainbow roll and it was excellent. My only complaint is that it wasn't bigger! I will definitely return.

The fish is fresh. The menu has a wide selection of sushi/sashimi. I've never had a bad meal here. I moved to the East Coast & when I returned I stopped in for dinner with a friend. The staff welcomed me back like a member of the family.

We had 5 people for dinner and tried a combination of nigiri, rolls and bento. Everything from the miso soup to the hot tea was great. Not the very best fish I've ever had, but quite good and tasty. What really stood out was the service and comfortable atmosphere. There were a lot of locals in the restaurant, and very... More
