“Nice restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2013

We ate here one night when spending a long weekend at Bear Creek Mountain. They cook dinner on the grill at your table, and the chefs are entertaining. Surprisingly good sushi, as well. We had a very large group, and noisy children, and the restaurant was incredibly accommodating. I would eat here again if I came through Allentown!

“Authentic Japanese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013 via mobile

This is a diamond in the rough. We almost turned away based on the outside, but we were lured in by the good reviews from Tripadvisor. We sat on the sushi side of the restaurant as opposed to the hibachi side, which seemed lively/rowdy. We were so awed by the selection of 'home style' dishes and sushi and ordered way too much food and everything was delicious: sukiyaki, ribs, yellowtail collar, sashimi platter, sushi appetizer and pan-fried noodles. All diners get a nice complimentary starter (Japanese amuse buche???) of cucumbers and imitation crab in a ponzu sauce. I am glad we ate here and would go back again if in the area.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2013

Our party tried the chicken, scallops, & sirloin. Everything was wonderful and the dinner show by our chef was great! I like the ice cream for dessert, it was included with the meal. Try the Green Tea ice cream. Only negative is the parking. Find a place on the street or very narrow parking spaces in the lot next to the restaurant but only after 5 pm.

“Best sushi in the lehigh Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2012

We sat at the sushi bar for several hours and had an amazing array of fish! the quality is very good and the sushi master is the best!
we spent some money but it was worth it! this is the real deal I stay away from bento box stuff in the states unless Im in LA or New york or Hawaii.
