do NOT go to this restaurant – the fist time i went the sushi was good, the service was good, prices very high. the second time, we spent a lot of money ordering sushi which was good, i paid with my debit card and left..the restaurant charged me TWICE for my meal on two different days. i went to the restaurant to correct this charge, the manager refused saying they did not charge me twice and insisted that it was an error with my bank. my sister and i split the bill and my sister also had the same problem and we have different banks. also when i walked in, the server that served us told me that the same problem has happened with SEVERAL different customers. i paid good money TWICE for one meal...if you go here pay in cash, or if you use a card, check your records, they might be trying to get you
Thoroughly Impressed – Matsusaka, makes me want to eat more and more sushi. By far the best service. By far the best sushi. By far the best menu. On my first visit, I was thoroughly impressed by the wait staff's recommendations. It is was has kept me going back.
Great ocean trout – I went with a few friends and they seated and served us promptly. The owner suggested we try the oceant trout and it was great. It melted in my mouth so I had to order more. Good times, I'm going back for the ocean trout.
Excellent Value – I was first quite amazed by their menu, because it was both unique and very authentic Japanese coverage. But I was still quite skeptical since almost all of the 100+ Japanese restaurants in Houston are operated by folks that had never dined in Japan nor trained in Japan and I was not keeping my hope up. BOY... I was wrong. The food was excellent and tasted authentic. The Kobe beef and the lamb chops were very good. But it was the appetizers and the grilled seafood that really made our night. Service was good but I came here for the food and they delivered! WOW... I'll be back!
Amazingingly great food! – As a discriminating sushi fan I have stuck to the same sushi restaurant for years, having never found anything better. Wow - was I surprised! This place has incredible food, the Dynamite bowl was so rich it had to be shared, and the sushi was thick, fresh and melted like butter. Being newly opened they sadly ran out of some staples like yellowtail and Kirin, but they had wonderful toro which we ordered as sashimi. The Magnolia roll was yummy and the service wonderful. A bit pricey - but Highly recommended.
Amazing Sushi! – Trust me when I say this is the BEST sushi in TX. I'm a little biased bc the Sushi Chef, Masa is a friend. But I can tell you he is a Master Chef, trained in Japan (how many of those in TX?). He picks only the BEST QUALITY fish and his sushi is made with 30 years of expertise behind it. AND it's yummy! Already, his old fans from Dallas are visiting Houston just to eat his food. No offense, but if you don't like his Sushi, you don't know what you're talking about. And if you want pre-prepared, pre-cut, pre-frozen fish, then by all means go somewhere cheaper! This is the best, best, best- and thats my UNBIASED view!. Sit at the bar and ask for Masa!
Disappointed – I am a sushi lover so I wanted to try this new place, but I am highly disappointed. Price is too high, and food quality is low: sushi was not well rolled, edamame was not fresh, and sashimi had too much wasabe. However, the worst part was the service. Our waiter was very rude, we never got drink refills, and it too forever to get any service. I live right around the corner, but I will rather drive to any other place. I will never go back there.
A dressed-up Westside strip-mall sushi spot with lively hibachi grills. – The Scene
Though it's tucked into the corner lot of a strip mall, the subdued earth-toned interior and a warm greeting from the hostess set a homey and comforting mood, while the chatter at the sushi bar and the hibachi grills lends a vivacious vibe. The waitstaff is attentive and offer their opinions on menu options.
Chunks of lobster give traditional miso soup a decadent kick; the seaweed salad is served with just the right amount of sesame oil. The black-stone shrimp appetizer comes out hot and spicy, with the shells easily peeling from the tender shrimp. Diners not in the mood for sushi head to the hibachi tables located in a back room, where chefs entertain diners while grilling up beef, shrimp and chicken. Sake lovers have more than a dozen choices from which to choose.
