I went to lunch with a friend. We both ordered different lunch specials. The portions were small, and each dish cost around $15. Fish was fresh but meal was slightly disappointing.

The lunch special menu has pretty good deals and the chicken ramen soup is great and very filling. Sushi is a bit overpriced but good. Takeout counter staff is not that friendly and usually slow.

Went with a couple folks from work, service was great, food was really good and fun place to do family style dinner/sushi if you're in the mood. It's a good break from the high priced, stuffier places nearby.
