I must say this is my favorite Japanese dinner spot in this area. The sashimi is always fresh! Try the chirashi for sashimi lovers -it's very filling. They also serve mochi for dessert. Yum!

Quite varied menu, with some traditional Japanese choices that are often missing from Japanese restaurants in the US. Great service, very efficient at lunch time despite full house. Nothing mind blowing, but nothing disappointing either.

Been here many times and never disappointed. Love to sit in the tatami room. Sushi is fresh and delicious. And great non-fish options too, for my daughters.
