    It was our first time there and we were very pleased with the dinner. I tried several things for the first time and they were delicious. I recommend the fish collar that the Japanese fried chicken. The Tako dumplings were not what I had expected but they were very good. My partner thought the sauce overpowered the Tako but I thought they were fine. Overall, a very good value for the quality of the food, the ambience, and service.

    We arrived 6 minutes after our reservation to celebrate the new year. The hostess already had given our table away. We were sat in the back upstairs secluded and away from.the restaurant ambience. The server offered us white salmon sashiminand I asked to have it paired with the Nigiri plate and she said she wouldn't know how to do that. The server then forgot about us upstwhen I went downstairs looking for her she was serving a whole new crowd at the bar top, which they should have offered us better seating after giving our reserved table away. The food was very sub par you can go to ANY sushi place pay less and have a better experience this was a HUGE disappointment and a disaster for bringing in the new year. Go somewhere else!!!

    We wrote our menu on paper, and gave it to our waitress. It helped minimize the effort and time taking to choose the items, and minimized our wait for our food, which, again, was delicious. We will definitely return.

    My wife was craving sushi so I took her here on a surprise date. The ambiance is like the set of a high school play. The service was great. The food, as our guts told each of us shortly after we left, was awful: a dose of chemotherapy. Needless to say, we’ll never be back.

    food was overpriced for taste and portion sizes. We waited over an hour for edamame and appetizers then an additional 30ish mins for our sushi. The server was either newly inexperienced or simply a bad server. I will never be going back to this restaurant and will never recommend this restaurant to anyone

    My husband and I were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary. We shared tempura, Moshi Moshi roll, spider roll and a rainbow roll. The only item he has that I didn’t was the Maguro Flight. He said the toro didn’t l”melt in your mouth” like at higher quality sushi restaurants, and he didn’t eat one of the items offers (chopped toro with onion). He felt I’ll an hour after dinner, and configured with “stomach issues” until 2am! So our anniversary celebration wasn’t the best.

    food was great. service was poor to fair. the waiter who brought out edamame basically threw it on the table scattering salt everywhere. rest of service was a bit rushed. seemed like they wanted to turn the table over ASAP.
