Our business group went out for lunch and was very pleased with the restaurant. The lunch was perfectly timed with the soup and salad. The sushi was great and the main dish was also great. A person in the group comes to Lunch every week. The group was presented with a sushi on the house for good luck in the... More

I wish there was a 6th star available! This was by far the best sushi I have ever eaten - everything was exceptionally fresh! Can't wait to visit again.

Excellent food and service. I stopped in for a quick lunch and I was served quickly and the staff were all very nice. I will definitely be visiting again soon!

I visited this restaurant alone to eat quick dinner. I ordered Deluxe Sushi Dinner. I also drunk two bottles of beer. Sushi was below average, small portion, and nothing special. Price was right, but I wanted to eat better sushi. It cost $52 including tips. I will not be back there.

My wife and I used to eat here regularly when we lived in the area, but moved nearly 8 years ago. We still have friends there though, and visit the area occasionally. On our way out of town this trip, we were craving sushi, and decided to stop back in to one of our old favorites. When we arrived, everything... More

I wanted so bad to love this tiny mom and pop restaurant, close to my office. I went three times, and I was disappointed every time. First, there always was a problem with my order. They always seem to forgot one item. One time is totally understandable, but three times ? Maybe I am just unlucky.... I have always taken... More

This place is near our home and has been recommended to us by a few of our friends/family. So, today after Mass we headed just down the block for a bite of lunch. First off, you have to duck/dodge some sort of flag or banner hanging in the doorway. I mean literally hanging half way down the entrance. Okay...trying to... More

The food and atmosphere are great here. I lived in Japan for a few years and although the food is not on par with what I've had in Japan, it is very close.

This is the best place to get sushi in the greater Cincinnati area. Best fish and best price. Make sure you try the Matsuya 2 roll and the amigo role. Site at the bar and talk to Panasonic. He is a pretty interesting guy.
