We showed up unannounced around 6:30 on a Monday evening and the dining room was pretty crowded. Even without a reservation, they sat us in a timely fashion (which was nice, since when I called earlier in the evening all I got was a answering machine). This restaurant is in an old home right near the downtown Lake Geneva shopping... More

Went for lunch and had an awesome experience. My wife had the Chicken Tempura, my son had the Mongolian beef and I had the Yakisoba Chicken. Everything was excellent. I tried them all, but my favorite was the Yakisoba Chicken. The service was great as well.

We were the only customers today during Oktoberfest at 12:00. We had great service. We had sushi which was incredibly fresh, beef & shrimp fried rice (like my Bachan use to make), and tempura Udon. We all received soup along with our meals. Everything was amazing and the price was perfect. My kids wanted to stay for dinner. This is... More

Amazing food. Wait time was a little long. Lobster was a little chewy but steak and sushi was fantastic!

Sushi on a hot summer day is a blessiong, as was the cool interiour of this beautiful old home. Great service! We had an assortment of sushi, and the sushi chief is a seasoned, tiny woman who creates beautiful sushie. My only concern is that we spent almost $80 for a sushi lunch (one glass of wine each). I would... More

The service is horrible and food is over priced. We showed up 10 minutes before our reservation and I asked to use the restroom, but was told i could not use it. We should have walked out then. As the services only got worst from that point.

I enjoyed the food. Tempura was good but a little bland. My hibachi filet was delicious and so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Price $28 for that size filet with rice, veggies, soup and salad was a deal. So much food I have another meal out of the leftovers. Hubbys Mongolian beef and shrimp Was just... More

Really delicious food! We got the spider roll, Godzilla roll, and spicy tuna rolls. Downsides- wait time and the menu doesn't have the descriptions of the sushi you have to wait for the server to explain it to you

It was the worst sushi I have ever had. Management basically told me " oh well" It's located in an old home. Small eating spaces, and ridiculous prices. Waitress was sweet and very friendly but management not so much. Do not recommend.

Made 5 pm reservations on a Sunday evening and were very disappointed. The place opens for dinner at 5 and no table was set up they had to cram one of us on to the end of the table instead of pushing two tables together. Some may say that was ok but, with sushi too many plates on the table... More
