Tasty innovative sushi. Great AYCE, but limited to sushi rolls only. A little slow making the rolls, but tasty and fresh.

Our server did not know the difference of a cocktail napkin and a clothe dinner napkin! Also the way the CA roll is fixed she had no clue!
We ordered a 2nd cocktail and our server never came back! I flagged down another server and explained it she went back took the drink off the bill that also provided one for my guest comp comp COMP also one for me she had to get our bill because supposedly our server was doing side work our servers name was Adele she was being trained but whoever was training her did a very bad job!

The Thursday night sushi special is a good deal if you like sushi. They dropped the ball on the service. It took forever to be waited on as I believe they forgot about us. They have no dining tables just couches and coffee tables. Not comfortable at all.

As of review . . . July 2021 . . .

THURSDAYS: All you can eat Sushi (just the rolls, which come in many varieties, have allowed me to make minor substitutions/deletions & are AWESOME, btw)

SUNDAYS: $1.00 Oysters . . . slurp them up!!!

Everything I've had has been good, prepared skillfully & presented beautifully. I've eaten here probably 8-10 times in the last 6-8 months.

They sit 2-tops at the bar . . . which isn't really comfortable & especially inconvenient on a date . . . so go on a double date if you're dating here . . . bring a second couple if it's date night . . . but do come . . . do enjoy . . . food, atmosphere, selection . . . great place!!!

Oysters on the half shell were 50/50. You could immediately tell that a few had gone bad and were inedible. Any shellfish in a state such as that should not be served let alone consumed. Aside from that the food was good and the service was as to be expected from a local casino venue.

Service was terrible. Took over 30 minutes to get a draft beer. Sushi is 95% rice, 5% fish, during the all you can eat special. Go to Taco Bell instead, you’ll be much happier.

It was great place for the $1 oysters and we tried some sushi that was good. If you are a couple you are limited on where they allow you to sit. Was not busy but we had to sit at sushi bar-she wouldn’t let us sit anywhere else but yet other couples were allowed to. Great place though!

Sitting right in front of the entry way was horrible. Service was slow. Food seems to taste better during regular dinner than the all you can eat special. Too much rice on rolls.

their seats are terrible, we can't sit on the couch for food.
But, they don't have table, we sit outside, it's very hot.
Since we eat sushi, the heat let us feel the food is not fresh.
We can't sit there anymore, so we ask "to go".
When they give the bag to us, it's not the food we order.
They charge us the money, but, don't give us the food.
Terrible seats setting, they need change it..

Made reservations with outdoor seating and a bottle at the table. Table wasn’t ready, we were sat inside in a corner, and no bottle at the table.
Food was ok. Indoor dining you eat on coffee tables. Service was extremely slow on a Sunday(it was not packed). 20 minutes for a drink, food came after an hour.

First time at this establishment and it was a Sunday - very busy. First impression wasn’t the greatest as it was obvious that the hostess had a lot to handle and she was dealing with some very drunk guests that she had to get the manager out to deal with - second impression was even better as the manager that came out was the same man that set us up so well a week earlier at the resort steakhouse, Bull and Bourbon. The group of drunks calmed down completely after Damon, the manager spoke with them and they were all of the sudden fine with coming back a bit later when they had room and a reservation could be made for them. Damon remembered us and sat us right away after clearing the doorway. Justine was our server, she was very friendly and even went behind the bar to make us our cocktails that Damon, the manager had recommended. The food is absolutely excellent here - we started with spicy edamame, tuna sashimi and rock shrimp. I had the Yakisoba w/chicken (the staff favorite) my guests both ate a dozen oysters that were only $1/ea. They also shared Gold Dragon and Caterpillar rolls and said they were as good as any sushi rolls they’ve eaten. Food and service - A+, ambiance a B- as it was very loud w/guest loudly speaking. Overall, this staff hustles right along with their manager Damon. I’ve seen it now in 2 establishments at this resort - he leads by example and it’s obvious that he cares about service and people. The staff made this a 5 Star visit and we will be back when we return to this area. Thank you Sycuan for being smart enough to have hired a great leader like Damon. Do whatever you can to keep him - excellent and exceptional.

I don’t normally do this but... we booked a reservation about 2 weeks in advance. Showed up for our 7pm reservation for 2 people and the take us to the sushi bar right in front of the chef. Seriously that is like a walk up spot when you don’t make reservations. Told the host that can’t be right we made reservations and she said we are fully booked. Just be careful when booking reservations here if you are planning to have a decent dining spot and not shoved up against the sushi glass.

The 1st time we visited this restaurant, service was very slow. We figured we didn't want to come back here. But when we saw their $1 oysters on Sundays, thought we'd try it again. But for some weird reason, we're always getting the same service 🙄 This place is not for someone that wants to eat and leave. Server never check on how our food was, took forever to give us our bill after asking for it. Overall, not a good experience, AGAIN!

Although I had requested Hailey Rodriguez as our server, her area was full. Our server was excellent though and attentive. I forgot her name, but she came back often to fill our champagne and asked if we needed anything/were okay. Great service!

Much better service and attention to details than the first time we ate there (a week before), we sat at the bar and the female bartender was horrible. She took my drink order and walked away immediately without asking what my husband wanted to drink. When she did take his order, the drink was watered down and she didn't come back to check on us as often as we would have liked, being that we were eating all you can eat sushi and wanted to order more. It wasn't very busy. Andrew ended up helping us a lot, and we tipped him half of what would have been her whole tip, had she been a better server/bartender with us. He did half her job, so he got half her tip.

The hostess was aggressive and insisted there were no tables even though I made a reservation. After we were seated, 20 minutes passed without any wait staff coming to see what we would like to drink and so we walked out. Extremely disappointing since the manger was aware of the initial issue with the hostess.

We had a reservation at 4:30 PM on a Sunday. We sat outside and it was pretty empty. The service was very slow for how empty the restaurant was. After the food was ordered it actually came out decently quick. We ordered the spicy edamame, rock shrimp app, shrimp tempura roll, and signing hills roll also $1 oysters! The food was delicious the only thing I would say is you need to have patients if you wanna eat here because the service is VERY slow.

Can't beat the Thursday night all-you-can-eat sushi special for $25. The food is fresh and delicious. The selection is limited but everything is excellent. Our favorites are the spicy edamame, the Singing Hills roll and Shosi Lucky roll. The ambience is great. Love lounging on the patio overlooking the pool area with a view of the rolling hills.

The drinks and the sashimi was good. The surf and turf Singapore noodles was inedible. It was so spicy that you can't even eat it. I mentioned it to the waitress and the only thing she did was say that she would mention it to the chef. She didn't ask if we wanted anything else, she didn't give us a discount, she didn't apologize, or do anything else. That was disappointing because the ambience and some of the food was decent.
