“Overrated, not fresh, Giant rolls smothered in sauce”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Can't imagine why everyone is raving about this place unless they don't eat a lot of sushi. Ambience was non-existant, service was ok. Sushi was average, slightly better than grocery store sushi. The rolls are HUGE and smothered in sauces..... Too much. The yellow tail was slightly fishy, rather than sweet and fresh. Yellow tail is my litmus test for sushi freshness and these guys didn't pass.

“Best Sushi”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a hidden gem and the best sushi we have ever found. Try the volcano and the sexywoman. Sit at the sushi bar and watch the masters at work, and please say hello to We, he has been there forever, and will remember your name for the next time you visit.

“Great Japanese food”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Nice little restaurant with an excellent Japanese menu, many varieties of sushis for all sorts of tastes - they also offer Thai dishes which is an added bonus. We tought the prices were honest and the portions good and some of the dishes offer salads and misso soup on the side without extra charge. The restaurant is nice, but without any fancy decor; service is nice and pleasant and the employees (it seems they are all Koreans) greet you when you come in and wish you a nice day when you leave Very familiar-like.

“Good Sushi but pricey”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

The food is always good here and the people are very nice. The only negative thing is the price
of the food is higher than most sushi bars. The people at the sushi bar are always pleasant to talk to.

“Very Good Sushi!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

One of the few Sushi Bars I trust! The food is consistently fresh and VERY GOOD. Try their "Sexy Man" or "Sexy Woman" rolls. Excellent. Their "raw dishes" are fresh as can be. Can't get past the Sushi....so can't offer anything on their other meals. Atmosphere is a bit "worn" and is due a make-over, but the food and service more than compensate for it! A very friendly staff. Expect a wait on the weekends. If you have a taste for Sushi, it needs to be on your list.
