So if you drove by this place, or even walked in, you may drive on past or walk back out. It's not very decorated and the tables are always consistently sticky. I've been there 5 or 6 times and every single time they are sticky....More

Our drinks had stuff floating in it. Everything looked dirty. We left and will not be going back. The servers are friendly, the menu looks good, but the un identified floating objects in our drinks were deal breakers.

Driving into the sleepy little town of Norton Virginia, I was surprised to see a Japanese restaurant. The atmosphere was blah but the food was very good, at a reasonable price, and the service was excellent.

Usually eat the chicken dinners. You get a lot of vegetables and rice with your dinner but its the shrimp sauce that makes everything better. You eat it on your salad and pour it over your food. Don't forget to try the carrots.
