Very good traditional sushi option in Houston (second only to MF Sushi in this category). I recommend the uni here, as it is fresh and comes in generous portions. The fish is always top quality [I have had their fatty tuna more than once], and service is very good.

Went for lunch and had the fish fry. Large portions and good grilled vegetables, but definitely didn't feel authentic. I asked the waitress if koreans ran the place and they told me chinese. Ok, I understand. Lunch specials are reasonably priced but, the rest of the menu seemed priced high. The place is large and spacious, so probably rent is... More

We walked to Osaka from Alliance Francaise and were early enough to avoid the rush. Extremely good sushi and grilled items. Several special touches and thoughtful servers made this evening a joy.

The sushi and sashimi were fresh and very good, and the drinks were also well done. In addition, our server, Christine was polite, helpful, and timely. I would definitely go here again.

This restaurant was a great experience. They not only provided great service, but also even provided a complimentary appetizer and a complimentary ice cream. I brought my family here and both my kids enjoyed the meal. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for reasonably priced, high quality sushi.

You get 2 "free" appetizers. I don't eat raw fish but their are plenty of options for me when I accompany friends who do.

This is the place I head too when I am wanting great value on Japanese lunch ($12 for a full meal) or a hotpot on a cold February evening. The service is kind and uncomplicated, food is rough, definitely specializing in traditional sushi, sashimi, miso soup and tempura. Great if you have never tried the 'good stuff' but a little...

Service and attention is superb, they send you some courtesy on the house, food is little greasy on my standards and some ingredients could be improved for better experience.

My husband and I are big sushi fans! We ordered Mt.fuji just like reviewers said and we ordered volcano roll and 911... they all tasted the same! The "crunchy" part of it was stale.. the free appetizers tasted better than the whole meal.. the green tea ice cream we didnt care for... we spent $75 for 3 rolls and appetizer,... More

My fiancé and I had dinner here Friday night for the first time. We were seated as soon as we walked in. The service was great! The waitress brought us two mini appetizers on the house and we were not expecting that, so that was an amazing extra! After finishing our meal, she boxed our leftovers up for us, and... More
