These restaurant was just remodeled and we decided to give it a try. We were disappointed because our food was half cooked, wait time was 40 min for takeout. When we stared to eat our food it was cold because it had been sitting at the sushi bar for 15 minutes before waitress packaged it. They forgot to put special... More

I come here about once every two weeks with my kids because they love hibachi. It is hit and miss.....sometimes you get a lot of food for your money, and other times you don't. Depending on the hibachi chef you get, the quality of the presentation also varies. The prices are a little on the high side, but on the... More

I have to be honest I didn't think I would find a sushi joint in Chalmette that I actually enjoyed. First off it is a low key kind of place which I love, with hibachi food. I have yet to have the hibachi but that will come. I have gone all over New Orleans looking for a roll that is... More

this is a very casual sushi bar. they make all of the standard fare rolls and sushi. nothing jumped out as especially mind-blowing, but everything was good. lunch special pricing was very good.

I called in an order for lunch. I ordered a snow crab salad and a crunchy roll. The snow crab salad was amazing as always but tge tempura in the crunchy roll was not crunchy. I attribute that to not eating it there and moisture getting to it a bit on tge drive back to work.

It smelled bad in the restaurant during our early date around 4:30pm. The service was poor and when my date asked for a 2nd beer the server gave him a tough time about it. We ordered sushi and hibatchi. Everything was brought out at once soup salad sushi and entree. By the time we got to our entrees it was... More

I must say I was impressed with them when they first opened. The but now the food is sub-par and the whole restaurant is covered in a film that I can only assume is from the hibachi grills not being properly ventilated. I personally got sick to my stomach the last two times I ate from there and we ordered... More

Husband and I both love sushi and are always trying new places. This restaurant won us over!! The employees here are so polite and pleasant. The service is excellent as well. Their food though, is AMAZING! My favorite is the tropical roll! They have an awesome sushi menu that even a picky eater will enjoy.

I ate the noodles because the sushi area looked extremely dirty. These noodles were so nasty my dog would not even eat them. I ordered the udon noodles because the waiter said they were the best thing in the entire restaurant. They look like giant worms and have about the same texture of fat worms or maggots maybe. Never the... More
