Food was very good, but the service was excellent. Not that many wine choices, but what they had were good and reasonably priced. Great salads. Edimame was warm and salted. Good noodles and good rolls.

Very sterile environment and the wait staff really couldn’t care less about how long we waited, (it wasn’t busy) or requests for another plate/bowl. There are other options.

Loved the eel hand rolls. The sushi looked great! I also had the crispy salmon roll. That could have a wee bit more seasoning. The customer service was also great!!!!! Looking forward to another meal here. The price was right too!!!
