“Great Sushi ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch. Thankfully didn't have to wait for a table. Large selection of sashimi, sushi, and rolls along with other traditional Japanese fare. Quality food, well-presented, prompt and friendly service. Wonderful, tasty meal and we were in and out in less than an hour as you would expect at lunchtime. Will return for sure. Lunch for 2 cost $40, including tax and a tip of $5.60

“Good, but not GREAT!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Average small Japanese sushi restaurant. We were seated quickly, but our group of 7 was the max this place could handle. OK sashimi platter, shrimp & veg tempura, soft shell crab, beef sukiyaki and chicken teriyaki.

Had a good time with the family. Did not try any of the rolls since we are somewhat of purists.

To say this place was excellent or outstanding is hard to believe. Good but not GREAT!

“Excellent Japanese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

In a very non inviting shopping mall there is this Japanese restaurant. Crowdy, noisy , very good and quick service and the food.... Oh it was so good. The seaweed salad was fresh and tasty and the 12 pieces of sashimi -yellowtail,red Tina and salmon-we're fresh and excellent. We haven't been in Japan but we have eaten in a lot of Japanese restaurants -this one is definitely one of the best.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

For authentic Japanese food, it is a must go. Been there twice and will be back again. Had Bento box for lunch once and their sushi bar is outstanding. My wife is Japanese and she knows good sushi. This one is.

“Still the best Japanese food in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

I brought some friends from out of town for dinner. Feedback was, " Their cuisine is among the best tasting Japanese food I ever had, as authentic as the ones I had in Japan." Freshest seaweed and sashimi cuts. Most flavorful udons and unagis. And service? I got a phoned in reservation within half an hour of dinner in a packed queued restaurant.
