    Love it. Great food, great service, always enjoyable. There were a lot of young children in the dining room. Uncontrollable by the venue but rather bothersome and annoying to my party.

    Great service and another amazing meal. There were 4 of us, and we shared 2 appetizers, 4 entree and special rolls, with a large bottle of Sake. We split the bill, which came to less than $40 each. Exceptional value for an exceptional meal.

    Everyone dining was having a beautiful experience laughing with their loved ones between bites or delicious dinners. I noticed a few people do that little shoulder bounce/dance upon the first bite. Kenzie IS tha goat. So funny. So personable. The entire staff is organized and friendly. What an experience. The food blew my mind. I ate slow so that I could save the rest of my Pho for breakfast today haha. Thank you.

    Recommend for take out but not dine in, due the lack of cleanliness. Floor was so sticky that I kept losing my slip-on flats. Reception area seating too dirty to sit while table being prepared.

    This place is a Gem! The Sushi and hibachi were second to none! Everything was amazing!  I went here on the recommendation of someone who is a local in Erie. They said it’s the best sushi in the area. They weren’t lying. Just go. On nice days there’s a nice outdoor sitting area that even has shade.

    Took my girlfriend for dinner, I received my two rolls 50 minutes after she received her hibachi dinner. Her food got cold because she didn’t want to start eating before me. She was completely done when she remembered her avocado roll for appetizer and ask about it so they brought it after she was done with dinner. The specialty rolls did not taste fresh at all. This was my favorite sushi place. The waitress was nice but was disappointed with the overall experience especially after building up the place as the best sushi I’ve been to especially here in Erie.
