The restaurant is easy to find, with reasonable prices, and very good tasting food. I'm not "huge" on sushi, but I very much enjoy the options. I usually go for a bento box or some soba noodles, instead of sushi. There are several cooked sushi options, and some even with cooked chicken, if that helps. Sometimes the wait for food is long, when they are overly busy, but there is always plenty of room to sit and the food USUALLY comes out quickly.

The service is always very prompt and courteous. I had the chicken kabobs and house salad with ginger dressing, it was very good!

Decent variety of sushi, and a buy 2 and get 50% off makes this a fine choice for sushi at lunch time.

Today they took me to eat at this restaurant and it is a cozy place and has a very good sushi, fresh and a very well prepared rice, the very good attention is a place that I would return and I recommend

I went here for the first time last week and was pleased with my experience. They offer BOGO half off sushi when you order 2 rolls or more. I don't get crazy with flavors/combinations, so I ordered the Carolina Sunrise and the Nemo, and I really enjoyed both. They were fresh and were delivered quickly (to be fair we got there right at 5 when they opened, so it wasn't busy yet). The service was good as well. I'll definitely make another trip back here!

High quality authentic Japanese. It's a great place for a sushi or ramen lunch.

OK sushi spot. It's popularity is likely due to its proximity to the RTP businesses. Sushi was good, but I would suggest trying Shiki Sushi by Southpoint mall or M Sushi in downtown Durham.

Very large selection of Japanese food and everything we tried was great! I especially love their 50% off sushi deal. Definitely going to be coming back many more times.

Awesome place. Their sushi are amazing 👌 It could be a little busy at lunch, so budget some extra time to get in and out.

This little shop is a must for authentic Japanese food. Staff was very nice and food came out in 10 min at most. We ordered the spicy beef ramen, two bento boxes, and a pork katsu. Everything was of utmost quality and extremely tasty! Delicious! Will be coming back!

Amazing discovery while out of town on a business trip. Amazing service and super delicious food. Ingredients were fresh and flavourful. The staff was hospitable and very helpful. I highly recommend and hope to come back to again.

Went here for the first time yesterday. Rolls were tasty and they have real wasabi available, which I consider important for any really good sushi place. Wouldn't mind some more exotic combos on the specialty rolls, but they were made well. I thought the hibachi was some of the best I remember having. Great, tender steak (so many hibachi places tend to overcook steak, but I asked for medium rare and it was just about perfect - enough grill time to get some flavor but still tender and juicy). Sake list is not huge but has some reasonablr selections and prices. I will probably focus on hibachi when I come back but the sushi is a good value and better than many places.

Great sushi and hibachi. Not out of this world, but definitely good enough to come back when we are craving Japanese. Reasonably priced for what you get. I appreciated the half off sushi when you buy 2+ rolls. The rolls are slightly slimmer than some places (which I read another reviewer complain about), but I personally liked the slimmer rolls: I could enjoy more rolls and not be super full or stuck with a large amount left of rolls I didn’t love and feel wasteful. I loved the San Francisco roll.

Food was very great. I would definitely recommend their bento box. They give you a good amount of food for the $16 dollars and separate everything in a nice box. And they are not rude about the amount of seafood they give you

Our favorite go-to sushi place. The food is fantastic and the staff is even better. We always leave with a smile on our face and a happy belly.

I give 4 Stars because the Sweet Shrimp and Toro were amazing. However, I also got 3 specially rolls which I felt were a little on the smaller size and there could have been a little more fish in them.
