I will just say that my experience at this restaurant was bizarre... We went there on a Saturday at around 6PM. There were no other customers. There were a ton of staff there. About 8 people working and they were all being loud and talking and goofing around. The waiter guy was nice and smiled a lot. The place was... More

This is the best place for non traditionally Sushi. They give you this sweet potato sushi roll to try while you wait. It is the best thing ever!!! We always come here. Bill the owner was here tonight and made me a flounder taco. It was very fresh and light. If you are looking for good food, good people and... More

Please just don't. Should have checked the reviews but was told by a local to go... Food was just barely edible and the teriyaki steak was not even edible. Fatty and tasted more like pot roast. Yuck. The waitress was rude, no refills for my drink... And it was HOT in there, lots of flies inside. Just don't. It's not... More

Met an ex-coworker here for lunch...it was fairly empty so we had the attention of the waiter. He gave us a free sampling of the sweet potato sushi which was surprisingly good. I ordered a bento box and it was okay...the sushi needed taste and though nothing was horrible, the food is so average that I'm not sure we'd come... More

Entrees from grill were absolutely terrible, sushi barely edible. All served by teenagers with no interest in anything but gossiping amongst themselves or staring vapidly into space. Never ever again

Swung through here after visiting family. Nice atmosphere, fantastic sushi. They are struggling hard with service. Terrible terrible service. Once (if) they get that straight, it can be great.

Had a late lunch... Great lunch menu! We had bento boxes, and were impressed with the value for the price. Be aware that the rolls labelled spicy actually are spicy! I usually don't think that is the case, but these had some kick! Relaxed atmosphere-not your average sushi place...more casual, bright and open. Definitely will go back!

IMHO, the only thing that keeps this from being a five star restaurant is the ambiance. Spicy tuna, miso soup and pork tonkatsu were all excellent. Entree was served in a traditional lunch box. Good selection of Japanese beers. The place was very clean, including the men's room. Nice young waiter who worked hard to connect with the patrons. This... More

Went here for a late dinner. There were four or five young people working here and seemed to be out of hand. When we opened the door the girl screamed... "Eating here or taking out" I replied we will eat here. She said "Sit anywhere".... The order was taken and when my dish came out it was so raw I... More
