We love the sushi rolls and they have a good selection to choose from. The deep fried rolls are fantastic. They also have good mushroom chicken, fried rice, and crab Rangoon. We always get a variety and share because we can't decide. The guys who work here are so friendly, they always make us smile.

Sushi place in a mall? Don't dismiss this great little restaurant just because it's in a mall. They have fresh, delicious sushi and a tasty hot menu too. Sushi is prepared while you wait and you can watch. It's no frills but the variety is impressive, the portions are big for a reasonable price. If you're in the mood for... More

My first sushi and it was great! The staff asked me what i liked and they helped me select the best match for my taste. Meal is made in front of you and priced very fair. Cant beat their service!
