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!

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.

When I walked in, two employees were at the front. One, later found to be the manager, made eye contact with me then walked away. I had to wait 3 minutes while the other took a phone order. When I sat down and my order was taken, she did not take my drink order. I said excuse me (and I know she heard me, I am a loud speaker) as she walked away. She did not come back until my sushi arrived where I finally was able to order my water. Asked for more shrimp sauce with my entree and got ginger dressing. Shrimp was over cooked. Veggies and rice are the only reason this is not a 1 star. Eel roll was $10 for 6 tiny pieces with hardly any eel in it. Way over priced for the portions. I know this place has a lot of great reviews, but my first impression is weak at best.
