We have eaten here a number of times now both at the hibachi side and sushi side. The service is always friendly (especially Harry) and he always remembers what we like to drink and that we like their incredible chili paste. The Manager, Mark, walks around quite a bit making sure everyone is happy with the food and service. The food has been excellent. We have enjoyed the hibachi and especially love the sushi. They have a good selection of rolls. The fish is always fresh and good quality. This is the best restaurant in Dacula.
