I drove by this place during the day, and the sign awakened a craving for good Japanese food. We came back later for dinner around 7:00 p.m., and had an experience that fell short of the expectation. The staff were at the sushi counter eating their dinner, but quickly disappeared once we came in. We were the only guests. The sushi counter was practically empty, and the place looked dirty. I quickly lost my appetite for sushi, and opted for the Chicken Teriyaki. The chicken was overcooked and tough; the vegetables were burnt and unedable. We also ordered edamame - it was the smallest portion I have ever seen, and the beans looked old. I was very disappointed with the whole experience and would not return, no matter how much of a craving I had.

Sushi is alright but the rest of our food was below par. The scorpion bowl was dirty, stunk and had things floating in it. Extremely unappetizing.

We ordered take-out sushi from this restaurant. On the phone they said it would be about 25 minutes, but when we arrived, they said it was very busy and would be another 25 minutes.

The maki rolls were very good. We also ordered seaweed salad. Unfortunately, it was still a little bit frozen in the center. Nonetheless, it was pretty good.

All-in-all, I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Went on a Saturday night at 7:00 -- it was not crowded. We order our food three of us ordered sushi and one of us ordered Chinese. Sushi arrives 35 minutes later and it is not very good or tasty in anyway--the tuna and salmon taste pretty stale in fact---which is scary to think about loooking back on it. One hour later and still no Chinese -- everyone else in our party has disposed of our meals. We decide to ask for our check and skip the wait for the Chinese dish. Fourth eater ate bland, pizza three doors away. Eating here is a risk in a lot of ways time, money wasted (refused our Restaurant.com gift certificate which was printed the day before--they said they told them they weren't accepting them anymore--not sure who's fault that it but I'd guess this "fine" establishment is at fault) time and taste buds were all tested.. Oh and the waitress said at one point-we're having some issues today our cook went to Albany for the day. Hope he was job hunting this place isn't long for Lake Placid eaters! You should avoid this place and eat anywhere else!
