Oysters, sashimi, scallops and hand-rolls with no rice (optional) make this place my #1 choice when craving sushi. Only con is that sometime when they fry fish due to the minuscule size of the restaurant it may smell over the place. Also, due to the size, seating is limited, so expect a line outside. not good for families dues to... More

This is a small sushi place and it's usually packed but In my opinion it's worth the wait. There's nothing fancy about the restaurant but you will have fresh, delicious sushi in a casual and friendly atmosphere. And you can't beat the prices either.

This is a must stop when I visit the OC You can go any direction in satisfying your craving for sushi+. Waited 45 minutes one time, (that's at peak time) and still came away happy. Come on ! Hand rolls for $1.25?! Try the sampler assortment of cold sake. Simple Hamachi sashimi is a test of quality and you won't... More

This is great concept and my son who is very sensitive to gluten loves this place and never has a problem. Yet it is a bit crowded and it is not a place to socialize they need for you to come in and eat and get out. They have a lot of fresh specials that are awesome but it just... More

I suggest getting here early because people come before it opens to wait for a seat at the sushi bar. The plates are cheap and food is fresh. The service is also helpful.

We ate here on a business trip. We selected the location based on proximity and the fact that it had some positive reviews. It seemed good to start with as we were seated promptly. Thereafter though the service was almost non-existent. We had to grab someone to take an lunch requests, we had to get up and ask for drink... More

I would not have believed that a conveyor belt sushi restaurant could be this good, but the food was fresh and tasty as any sushi I have had in a very long time. I ordered from the sheets provided and included special requests. My food arrived quickly and was prepared just as requested. It was also less expensive than similar... More
