(If you are staying at the hotel, you probably aren't concerned about price.) This place had excellent service. The rum drinks were very good, but our original choices were unavailable due to a shortage of the ginger liquor they normally carry. We had two spicy tuna-based rolls and were not disappointed. The ahi sashimi was a little more fishy than I like, but still edible.
Bottom line: If you LOVE sushi and never get it because you had to move to a cow town.... Indulge yourself. If you live in a modern area with abundant sushi, you won't miss anything if you skip this'd urging your vacation.

We had a a very nice late meal. The service was good and the food delicious. It was late so our waiter suggested three exception rolls.

I had the best experience at this lovely restaurant located in the Hilton hotel. The staff were amazing and very experienced with the menu, my friend and I both found the sushi to be exceptional and the best we have ever tasted.

Food is less than average. Service is horrible. Lots of open tables and we felt rushed. For the $$ I would not waste your time. Sushi was dry, terriyaki chicken looked boiled and tasteless.

We went to dinner with our children. We had reservations, but here were lots of empty tables. The menus were not very clean, which is a bit concerning. The water tasted a little funky. The appetizers were ok. We had sushi. The main courses were also ok. The wok salmon was probably the best of all the food ordered. It look so long to get our food that we were given a 15% discount. We decided to skip dessert. The bill for 4 people came to $200. Keep in mind that we had 3 soft drinks, 2 appetizers & 4 entres, it was over priced & over rated. To be fair our waitress was very nice.
