I have been to hundreds of sushi places around the world and I have never encountered worst sushi. It was fishy, chewy and poorly cut. The tempura was also greasy, thick and disgusting (especially the shrimp tempura). For a Japanese restaurant, this was an absolute disgrace and I am surprised anyone has encountered a good meal here. The nearby Miyagi... More

This restaurant has very good selection of sushi and is is very reasonably priced. Be aware that this restaurant is pretty small so on weekends nights it might hard to get a table. Also, they do not much of menu beyond sushi. Beyond sushi, they have tempura (which is pretty good) and teriyaki chicken (which is only OK). The other... More

We love going here when in the area. It is a very small place, a local family run business. The husband is one of the sushi chefs as his brother. The wife takes orders and oversees the diners. There are about a total of 9-10 tables for 2 which can be arranged for a party of 6 or 8 max.... More

The food is tasty and fresh and the service is good, they are very attentive. The reason to give them 3 stars: 1) the rolls fall apart 2) the slices of the rolls are inconsistent therefore you get very large pieces and very small pieces on the same roll 3) you have to memorize the sushi you want to order,...

Great local restaurant with great sushi and a wide variety of rolls. All are hood and place is pretty reasonable. Not very large inside so can get crowded. Best for a quick casual meal with excellent food. Service very friendly.

I usually call ahead and pick up for lunch. The fish is always fresh and really good, I like their lunch specials. Not too much food, but enough to get me through the day till dinner. I've not been disappointed. The restaurant itself is very small and it can be hard to get a table at peak lunch and dinner... More
