I absolutely love this place! The service is great, the drink menu is on point and the food is outstanding. I can't wait to go again when I visit in the fall. Best filet hibachi I've had in a long time. Highly recommend!

This place has some good sushi, a little over priced compared to other sushi places and its not the greatest. Would go back.

The place is nice, looks new. The Sushi was of very high quality. It is a loud place due to the Hibachi tables. The service was prompt. The neighborhood is 'up and coming' (as is most of the Southside). So, don't expect a Tiffany's across...More
