Small town place with mostly locals and young people. Stir fry is all sorts of forms. Pretty healthy good prepared in a simple fashion. I thought it was nice.

Our service was great but the food was just ok - nothing special but not bad. If you're from a larger city and have experienced great sushi you'll likely be disappointed. Just keep your expectations in perspective.
