“Good sushi but no liquor?”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Been going here for years. Last time we went we were told that they did not have their liquor license right now. Odd seeing that a renewal is about $150. The sushi was good and the service was prompt. Hope they get their license figured out soon.

“Not Very Good”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

This sushi restaurant was a staple in my eating out habits for 10 years. Since the new ownership it has gone downhill. The woman who owns it makes me uncomfortable and acts like a soup nazi. I don't find the fish fresh and wonder how long it's been hanging around. My suggestion is seek out another sushi restaurant. There are several in the greater Denver area that are quite good.

“Sushi Going Down Hill”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

Working near by this used to be our "go to" place for lunch Sushi as there isn't a lot of choices in the Denver-West area. However the last few times I've been there for lunch (over the course of the last 9 months) I've noticed a steady decline in the quality of the Sushi.

Since they've gone to the "all you can eat" option the sushi has not been as fresh as good sushi needs to be. The nigiri we ordered was a little fishy and mushy.

Their non-sushi menu is still tasty (Love their Katsu) and of a high quality.

“Fresh”
Reviewed 4 December 2012

The sushi is so fresh here. They have redone the inside and it is more appealing. The staff doesn't bother you much and they let you eat and enjoy your meal. The all you can eat sushi for lunch and dinner is the best!!!
