I’m from LA California in search for a unique sushi restaurant to have lunch with my love. Customer service was great he recommended us a Rainbow, Miami roll and our favorite sex on the beach roll. We added spicy edamame and hot sake. It’s was a good experience I see myself coming back soon.

The food was fresh and the service was very quick. While I enjoyed the EDM-type music, it was a bit too loud to have an easy conversation.

We were in the area of Katy Mills Mall and my wife wanted sushi. We though we’d try this place out because it had some decent reviews.

The service was really good no issues with that. The issues was with the quality of the food and the price. For 3 rolls 5 entrees 2 canned drinks 2 kids powdered teas and 2 beers it was over $170 and the sushi rolls were California roll, rainbow roll. And some other roll. They fell apart when you picked them up, they were warm when there was nothing cooked in them and were the last things to come out.

For mains we ordered a couple of yakisoba noodles which were dowsed in sesame seed oil. The good thing is they used decent sized shrimp but the quality was not there for the price. My wife had some sashimi that she enjoyed.

I wouldn’t recommend this place, go to Shogun or Benihana instead. Cheaper, Tastes better, and an overall better experience.

The server and one of the managers were very friendly and provided excellent customer service. However, another manager was very rude to us because we asked about a server that used to work there. He looked very mad when we told him “it’s so sad he’s no longer here” the manager said: “sad for you but not for us” and left with a very angry attitude. That’s not professionalism in front of the customer!

Great food and a wonderful atmosphere. Service was superior! The food was very good although I did get a little bit bogged down with the volume of the menu. It seem like many items were similar to each other and I could not distinguish the difference. They’re probably was one but I just could not note it. Wait staff helped me to make good decisions.

Wonderful experience! I made reservations on opentable for restaurant and we arrived a little early (about 20mins) but were still seated in a cozy booth that was reserved just for us. Our server was Sylvia and she was super sweet and attentive to our needs. The had $5 drink specials and i have the sex on the beach that was nice a strong. For my entree i had the Kokai roll it was delicious and i had the hibachi chicken and steak served with veggies, the steak was juicy and tender and the chicken was tasty also. Since i was celebrating a birthday they brought out a free dessert of brownie and ice that was the perfect ending to a great meal and wonderful service. I would definitely come back

They sang happy Birthday and i got free dessert brownie with ice cream that was also delicious
