Really good sushi - had a few rolls that were nicely made and fresh. Also had general tso chicken / that wasn’t good and it had MSG in it so I had a major migraine as a result.
I’ll go back and stick to the rolls.

Fantastic sushi and drinks. Worth every penny. Extremely clean spot. Probably the only place around making their own fresh dumplings.

I took my son for his birthday dinner here after reading wonderful reviews. The service was spot-on, staff was attentive and consistent.

We had sushi, which was ok, not great, not particularly high quality. I also had the octopus and scallop salad, which was ok, then the shrimp and pad thai noodle dinner which was good.

Would I return? Probably not as I am a big sushi aficionado and this just didn't hit the mark for me personally.

Hi Nicole sorry we didn't fully impress you with your meal. We love sushi foodies. May i kindly suggest next you visit, mozy on up to the sushi bar and ask for our Chef Johnny's omakase menu. There's always something very different from the ala carte menu. We have baby yellowtail, Pacific NW oysters, chu toro and other goodies. Best Chef Larry

Food was delish, service was great. Was offended when told and showed them what I found a piece of plastic in food, made me feel as if I put in my food. I ate the food, but did not appreciate the insinuation

I saw this restaurant pop up on OpenTable a lot lately and it looked so nice inside we took a chance and tried it. So happy we did. The restaurant itself is gorgeous! Food, wait staff and owner all fantastic. Also we had a few drinks, App and dinner and still left spending under $100! We will absolutely be back and have been recommending everyone to try the restaurant since we went

We are glad we stumbled into this gem in Shelton. It is unassuming on the outside, in a strip mall between a Stop & Shop and a gym, but don't let that fool you.

The decor inside is stop-notch with generously-sized booths, and the food is a great mix of traditional favorites and innovative specials.

The food was freshly made, well balanced and very reasonably priced.

The service is prompt and friendly without crossing the line into casual familiarity that plagues many casual eating establishments.

Overall, a great experience that we will repeat.

Our first time here & very impressed overall! We were greeted with a warm welcome & sat in a booth. Service was excellent waiters took the time to explain most items on the menu. Fried oysters & dumpling appetizers were very good as well as the Crispy Fish & Thai Basil Beef entree’s . Gary the waiter recommended the ‘fried ice cream’ for dessert. Overall a great dining experience... we will be back!

Went for lunch. Ordered an appetizer and lunch box special. Everything was very good, however, they could have done a better job with timing of when they brought the food out. The soup, appetizer and lunch all were served at the same time.
