great staff! great food! – from the minute i walked in everyone was so friendly and timely. i sat down at the sushi bar immediately and had water and hot tea (usually i have to ask for that) given to me. the sushi chef apologized for the wait since they were short staffed that night but i didn't wait at all! you get FREE miso soup with every order (they even asked if i wanted a refill) and FREE veggie/salad samples. i am not too daring when it comes to sushi and i told the sushi chef (SONNY - he works tues & sundays) and he made sure to ask me how spicy i would like my roll and it was perfect! the hamachi was so fresh and delicious as well! i will be going back next sunday and will be making this a regular spot of mine! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Japanese restaurant - quality food, reasonable prices. – From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but don't be fooled. We decided to try it because a friend recommended it. There's also a small sushi bar. The menu is quite extensive and the prices are quite reasonable for the quantity and quality of food. We had the 3-choice combo and sukiyaki. Everyone is served a small tasting of 3 different tsukemono (seaweed, cabbage, and 1 other).

For the combo, we chose shrimp tempura, butterfish, and sashimi. The tempura had 2 good size shrimp and 3 pieces of veggies and the butterfish had 2 nice size pieces. But the sashimi....I couldn't believe how much they gave. I think it was 3-4 very clean slices of red fish (no suji at all), 3 slices salmon, 3 slices of a white fish, 1 piece of tako leg and shredded daikon. The slices were larger than some restaurants we've been to that don't give as much. All this for $15.99. 2-choice combo is $13.99 so for $2 more, you can have a generous portion of sashimi. There are a lot of dishes to choose from for the combos.

The sukiyaki was very good also. It contained very thin beef, several slices of kamaboko, a shiitake mushroom, about 3-4 slices of tofu, won bok cabbage, round onion, and a raw egg yolk in the center. I think it was somewhere around $13.

Lunch is from 11-230 and dinner is from 5-10pm. We got there about 6:30 and luckily didn't have to wait, but it was almost filled. I would go a little earlier as parking can be a challenge in that small complex of eateries and bars, but it's well worth the effort.

Cant' wait to try the unagi...or tonkatsu...or 12 oz rib steak, or salmon....or

Clean, friendly and great food! – I fell in love with this restaurant the first time I dined here... and it's been my favorite since then. I'm a "neat-freak" so I love a clean restaurant... even the bathroom was nice! The food is fresh and the cut of meat they used for my tonkatsu was lean and tender.

Would recommend to ANYONE!
