“Food was bad, service was good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Nice staff but extremely slow service, food is expensive and while not horrible, certainly not worth the price. Inconsistent service...had two orders of $7 California Rolls (already expensive) and one came out without avocado inside. Not only did they taste horrible, but they were a rip. Won't be returning.

“Just awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

As an easterner in California, I expected quality sushi...so I ordered a California roll. Perhaps the worst I've ever had. The rice was mushy and the shredded mystery fish had some type of creamy binder to hold it together. It's hard to believe that these people can stay in business with this level of quality. But location in the heart of the Palm Springs tourist district may trump quality.

“Perfect outdoor seating for my ragamuffins.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

Sushi on the strip, seating outside, we had a great time!

Luckily it wasn't busy, we got seating outside so my two kids could run around without disturbing anyone else. :).

They brought out the kids udon first, which was awesome. My kids finished the bowl of udon, teriyaki chicken was good, sushi was incredibly fresh.

We would totally go back & make this place one of our standard places to go when we visit.

“Nothing good to say”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

Agedashi tofu not prepared properly & just served in a soup of soy sauce. Did not eat, server did not say anything about us not eating it. Cucumber salad just cukes & lemon wedges. Hair in the ginger & when we pointed it out server did nothing, not even an apology. Then when bill came they overcharged us for the tofu. It was an unpleasant dining experience. There are probably better sushi places in Palm Springs.

“Fast service~good place for lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

I had lunch here prior to going to the Follies across the street. I don't like miso soup so the waiter agreed to substitute it with rice. The waiter was cheerful and friendly and offered suggestions. I chose the tempura lunch which came with salad and the rice. This would have been best served in a bento box..however it was very good. My only complaint is that the sauce for dipping the tempura was very salty, otherwise it was a good lunch for the price.
