Yummy sushi...kinda slow service – I needed to fix my sushi craving and I wanted to go someplace close, so I decided to go there because my friend said it was pretty good. I decided to get the all you can eat sushi because I figure 2 sushi rolls was equal to the price of the all you can eat deal. So because of that we sat at the bar. The fish was fresh, delicious, and was well prepared by our sushi guy. We manage to get most of our food in a timely fashion (because we sat at the bar). Other than that, service was a bit slow. It took us a while to get our drinks refilled. And as I was sitting at the bar, our sushi guy had to shout numerous times at the waitress to get the sushi because he was done making it. So I figure that it was more the waitress' fault for slow service than the sushi guy. To sum it all up, if you have the patience and time for great sushi, go there. Btw...parking may be a pain in the butt if you go there at a busy time.
Horrible service. – The bottom line: we were kept waiting and waiting for our food. To explain, we ordered a lot of different sushi for a group of 5. The first course did not arrive until at least 15 minutes after we were served miso soup. The sushi came literally 6 or 8 pieces at a time. After an hour of waiting (and only being served 4 or 5 dishes), we asked the waiter (very nicely and patiently) to see if the remaining food could be served all at once. He agreed to check, but just plainly did not. After another 15 minutes of waiting for our server, we asked the manager to cancel our remaining orders. By then we had spent an hour and 40 minutes eating maybe 5-6 pieces each. We were fed up with the slow service, and wanted to go somewhere else to fill our stomaches. When it became clear to the manager that we were intent on canceling our unserved orders, the remaining dishes miraculously arrived all at once, 15 minutes after. In sum, the waiter was unattentive; the manager's action was shady, when she blatantly ignored our request to cancel the remaining orders, knowing fully why we were eager to leave. If those in charge in the front behave without integrity, it's hard for me to imagine what goes on in the back of the restaurant.
Great Sushi! – The location of the resturant makes it difficult to locate but the food makes up for it ten times over. The sushi is fresh and inexpensive with sushi specials throughout the day. The service and atmosphere is great.
