Good food. Their beer temperature control SUCKS. Everytime I've ordered beer here, it is SKUNKY. If the owner wants to talk to me about it. Google my name and call me ANYTIME. Seriously Beer temperature is a very simple task.

The food is FANTASTIC. Amazing sushi, fried rice and other apps, however. the service is terrible. I have been there a few times; the last time I was there, a friend and I were the only ones in the restaurant and received the worst service ever, even though they were dead and had no one else around to cater to! After a while of waiting for some food, any food, we were asked if we wanted to wait for our appetizers or get our sushi since that came out first - I'm sorry what? - we ordered apps FIRST as soon as you came to our table and never received them; they came out along with our main meal. I ordered another glass of wine, never received it. When I called the next day to complain, they told me they had no such thing as a manager or owner to complain to. Definitely go as the food is really worth it, but know ahead of time your server may be in a bad mood and forget to provide you with an "ok" service.

there's something eerily dismal about the people that work here. that is all. the sushi is sub par and the main dishes may as well have been made with reconstituted meat + water. multiple times i have called and not been able to get through to order fking takeout poop sushi. smh. the people write good reviews about this place are either ignorant, dumb, ignorant, dumb or a combination of the above.

Real Japanese food, vast menu, magnificent and creative chef. Ask chefs make sashimi not on the menu, usually they will use best fish for you. Breath taking food!

Eaten here 5-7 times, good sushi, better staff. The wait staff is always nice, offering good recommendations on both food and drink. Last time I was here, the owner even came out, chatted with us and made us a custom sushi roll - and it was great. Never had a bad experience here nor have I witnessed one. I would recommend it to my best friends and family, especially if you like your sushi with some kick. Try the King Kong.

The food is excellent in quality, and the sushi itself uses quality fresh fish. Normally I would recommend a place like this in a heartbeat except for the recent dining experience tonight. The wait-time was horrendous between ordered dishes, with the wait time approaching 35-45 minutes between dishes, in which I quite literally saw people order, get served, eat, pay, and leave multiple times in the period we waited for our next course. Between that and the rather small portions where constant orders are nye required in order to get ones fill it just made a rather poor combination. Yet this alone is understandable as the place was getting pretty busy and not what ruined the experience in and of itself. The issue being the store's manager (who was also our server) accused my father and I, who I was treating to a nice Father's Day meal, of swearing and using foul language, upon receiving the supposed accusation from one of his staff members who we dealt with only briefly. Further he did this by delivering us the bill in the middle of the meal and essentially telling us to leave the restaurant while we still had another order under way (which you can thank those 45 minute wait times for!). When I disputed the truth of the accusation he called me a liar to my face. This not only ruined an otherwise pleasant meal (if one with a long wait), but change the environment to a hostile and aggressive one where I no longer felt welcome as a guest. Certainly not a location where I would go again. Especially not when I am paying $27.00 dollars a plate. To the servers/manager's credit he did comp something like 15% of the bill, in an attempt to make it right but even still the mood and the evening was ruined. Over all? One out of five stars. Unless you want to have the chance to get called a liar to your face and insulted, avoid this place like the plague.
