“Meh”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Stopped in for some sushi. Its in a mall. Pretty nice setting. Service was fine until 5 minutes to close, when they really rush you out. Food was hit or miss, a little expensive. Lots of vegetarian options. Decent selection of foods. Might try it again.

“You'll find better sushi elsewhere for cheaper”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 via mobile

We're locals, so we know of the different spots around Monterey. This is a decent place if you're starving for sushi. But there are better places (and not too too far from this joint) that are better AND cheaper.

“Worst sushi ever”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 via mobile

Fish wasn't fresh, the rice wasn't flavored properly and the noodle soup overcooked. Service was not at it's best and table not clean. Had lot's of sushi in my life, this was definitely the worst

“Not good. TOO much sugar. Disappointing.”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

I tried this place on my lunch, VERY disappointed. Place doesnt feel comfortable. And although the sticky rice should be sweet but this place is likely to give you diabetes. Way too much, couldn't finish. And the prices are ridicules. Asking too much for rolls that aren't any good. I wouldn't bother trying this place. Would NOT recommend.
