We stayed with the sushi selection which was good and reasonably priced. The place is set like a diner but is nicely done, the service was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our meal and will certainly visit again.

The service was excellent, but the rolls were sloppy and the tuna tataki my wife ordered was drowning in a sauce I didn't recognize. The restaurant came with a local recommendation, but I can't concur.

This is a quick dinner type place for my husband and I. They have a nice hibachi grill offering and it's reasonable. The Wasabi dumplin's are our favorite.

Everything we had was good. The staff is friendly. They have a nice variety of things. The owners are friendly if you know them. We don't, but went with friends that do. Ask for suggestions if you don't know.

Haven't eaten here in years and found the quality of food service and the dedication of the chief has only gone up. Don't be fooled by the location in an old shopping Plaza or in a smaller town. This place can rival many large city...More
