Service was sub-par. Our waiter was very impatient to take our order. We ordered appetizers which arrived with our dinner. In addition, they forgot one of the appetizers. Service was very slow and poor.

A great place for colorful rolls. Sashimi is also creatively done.

This restaurant is meant for old white people. All the rolls are just crab and rice. Have your rich white dad take you here.

Unlike last time, this time I got my favorite server, Stacie, who is attentive but not intrusive, warm and friendly. She has been with this restaurant for years. The food, as always, was just great.
