Great ambience, good food, excellent customer service – 1st time I went was with a group of 18 people. We were seated right away, it was one of those Japanese style room with lowered table, decorative pillows and mats were place on the floor to cushion your tush. I was impressed with the ambience. The server delivered an excellent service, she was, not only fast, but very helpful, approachable and attentive as well. The food was good, although there's definitely room for improvement. The drinks as well as the prices were average. We took our (out of the country) visiting guests and they were very impressed. We ordered mostly the boat that included most of the cooked food on the menu (chicken, beef, salmon teriyaki, shrimp, vegetable tempura, also some california rolls). To satisfy our raw fish cravings, we also ordered several side sushi dishes. The servings were of decent size. Parking is available at the back. The restroom though, would need tidying and maybe some renovation.
good service, cozy atmosphere, BUT bad food – normally i clean the plate at most sushi restaurants but when i ordered the sashimi combo with teriyaki chicken, i found myself in an unprecedented position. they offered only 4 pieces of chewy, tasteless tuna sashimi which i had to forcefully force down my throat. on top of that, the teriyaki chicken was nontender and below par. i had high hopes walking into this restaurant, what, with the modest, mundane entrance i had hoped to encounter the sweet paradox of "melt in your mouth" fresh fish. unfortunately, what greeted me was disappointment. however, the waitresses were friendly and the place was very warm and welcoming, especially in the cold night.
BEST SUSHI! – I have gone to this place for years. The food is awesome. Best sushi in town! Price is reasonable and it is very spacious and clean restaurant. Highly recomend. Service is great!
Great Service – The service is just wonderful. Very friendly waiteress. The food is alright. Good but nothing special. The restaurant is not big, but cozy. I went on a Monday night and it was full of people.
