This place is really good. Although the prices can look a bit daunting on the menu, they are justified. The amount of fish you get on the rolls here is unbelievable, and the rolls are also HUGE! Worth trying if you are a sushi eater.

If you happen to around this part of the world MAKE sure you stop and eating sushi here. Get the tataki bowl with albacore, a srirachi bowl and a rainbow roll.

They do give you a lot of food for the money. The fish pieces are large and portions are huge however, I found the quality isn't up to par. Felt like they try to make up for the lack of quality with more food. However, that said, it is a nice little restaurant with friendly staff. I would return but wouldn't consider it highend sushi restaurant. Ohshima in Orange or Kimagure in Pasadena is better in my opinion.

This place is great. The Chirashi is gigantic, as evident by many of the pictures available on this site and other review sites. It's a bit pricey, but the portion sizes are comically large and it's very fresh. They add 'extra' flavorings and textural things to the chirashi that doesn't exist in more traditional japanese settings.

The service can be a bit slow and not very attentive, which is the drawback of this restaurant.

The wait times are very long and I don't think it's worth it just to show up for dinner without a reservation. . . so call a day ahead, even if it's for a table of 2. They have an outdoor and indoor seating area. Pick the indoors . . . the outdoors was a bit dingy and dirty.

Overall, I loved it and will definitely be headed back.

A medium size restaurant tucked in a quiet residential/warehouse district of Hacienda Heights popular with the locals, has the BIGGEST Chirashi in Los Angeles County. Fresh sea urchin, yellow tail, tuna, unago, scallops, salmon, sweet shrimp, tako, and three different kinds of fish roe all on a generous bed of seasoned sushi rice. The chirashi is $40 per order, but it is so big, it is enough to be shared up to three people.
