This spot is a favorite of ours. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.

For drinks, we ordered the "Wind" Sake Sampler - it helped me to find Sake that I like and will order next time.

For food, we ordered the Tempura appetizer - delicious and fresh. We ordered the Family Affair roll - it was so good we ordered a second. The flavors were unique but familiar and played off off each other well. We also ordered the Spider Roll - the crab was fresh with great texture.

Would definitely recommend and we will be coming here again and again.

Really impressed with the sushi quality and the fact they get get fish from Japan daily for being such a normal price point, we will be back.

My favorite part of my meal was the sake flight. I love being able to taste different sakes and enjoy them for their differences.

Came for a Food Show and looking for a quite place to have good west coast sushi. They had all my favorites and a good raw fish selection. The staff was very friendly and they were quick.

Love this place - it is amazing food. Always get the Chef's Special roll (which is different every time). You can ask for different ones even on the same visit and they are always AMAZING. Love Chef Jerry and the whole team there - everything they make is delicious.

Food is always delicious and even tried a few new rolls this time. My favorite is always the nigiri which is perfectly prepared and the service is always friendly.
There is always a wait on Friday night, but I can make a reservation 5 minutes before I get there and have no wait for a table.

My group had reservations for a party of 7 on a Friday night. The restaurant was extremely under staffed, and it took a long time to get everything. I understand that the restaurant was busy, but I saw how frazzled each employee was because of the busyness.

Came in on a Saturday night, to a full restaurant; and was immediately seated for our reservations. Restaurant was definitely bustling, and guests were all having a great time. Servers were working as a team to turn tables, and getting to guest's needs. Made it for an overall great experience.

The food tasted very fresh and service was excellent. My wife is not a sushi fan and wants to come back.

With so many great spot for sushi, I can’t imagine ever coming back here. Everything was fine, but nothing special at all. The service was so scattered and we felt totally rushed out the door.
