We've eaten here dozens of times and have never been disappointed. The food is fantastic. Service can be a bit hit and miss but the staff mean well. It's also byo which is a bonus.

Good, simple, japanese food. Fair menu choice and range, fresh food, nicey cooked. Reasonably basic atmosphere but relaxed and friendly. Went twice in two days by coincidence and enjoyed both visits. More a family & friends or casual meeting type place. Not fancy.

This is our local so I never think to write a review. The food is so authentically Japanese especially the sushi and sashimi. So fresh and great variety. I see some of the other comments saying it is crowded and noisy. Yes it is usually...More
