A friend and myself were able to sit at the sushi bar. The food was prepared in front of us and looked so fresh. The taste was amazing, I had several orders of Hamchi (my favorite). Also had the salmon, spider roll and rainbow roll. All of it was excellent. Great experience.

Very good food. Service needs to improve. I would mostly recommend this place for lunches and take away.

Great food, fun atmosphere and attentive service!
Far better ventilation than Hana Japan, if you go there you may need to wash/dry clean whatever you wear. This restaurant is much better for Tapenade style dinner

The food and services are just fine, we are just not comfortable with the food cooking and food aroma and smoking oil from the cooking at the chef cook tables. When went home our hair and clothing full of food smell and oily particles are still hanging around.
I think it is better having a divider for the two sections.

The food is good and sashimi is fresh, but the ambience smell is not good. Hope to see some improvement.

Always go to this place one of the best spots not just for sushi but for Teppanyaki Grill also. Service is always great they know us here and love that they put extra care into returning customers.

Sushi just wasn't fresh enough. Server had difficulty understanding our requests, delivered one incorrect order, and charged us for miso that we had not ordered.

Excellent food and service for a good price. A little weak on the ambiance/decor, but definitely a great place to go.

Food is fabulous, fresh and beautifully presented. Great service. Family style or individual. The sea bass is the best! I've eaten here many times and I've never been disappointed.

Food was great but the restaurant is looking very tired. Menus are dirty and falling apart. Seats need new covers.
