Food was really good the fried lobster was super awesome!!! It's a little loud inside -kinda like a cafeteria, but so worth it! Kinda spendy, but the waitstaff were friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms very clean.

Everything you would expect from a Japanese restaurant. Very popular with the locals, of which I am one. Nice to be able to bring a big group. Crowded on weekends, so get in early if you don't want to wait. You will note lots of...More

This is a local restaurant for us and *the* place for sushi per my avid sushi-loving friends. Our group eats here roughly monthly and they say the fish is very fresh and better than any sushi restaurants in Santa Cruz. I'm a novice myself preferring...More
